I had a beautiful place to stay in London - a friend's flat near Camden Market.
Check out the view.
My first day in London started off with vanilla scones and tea from a little restaurant I found on my way to the tube.
Once I figured out how to use the tea pot, I greatly enjoyed it! I'm really more of a coffee person, but I can get used to this.
I love riding the tube; it reminds me of living in Boston.
At Parliament, I was greeted by Big Ben. It wasn't foggy; I just got a little carried away with the instagram filters.
It was actually beautiful out. Check out the London Eye.
My favorite though, were these signs on the street - I needed help not getting hit by the cars driving the wrong way!
I walked along the bank of the Thames to the Tate Modern Museum followed by the British Museum. They were amazing and interesting, but it was a very long walk. Being a tourist is exhausting!
After my wanderings and a well-deserved nap, I met up with a friend for dinner at York & Albany. Pizza and red wine to finish the day!
All in all, a very fun day!
