Anyway, after the book buying extravaganza, we stopped for some ice cream, killing time until we had to get back on the bus to Surbiton. Of course, when we went back to the bus, it started down pouring, so we were all soaked for the bus ride back home. We got back and dried off a bit before venturing back into town for dinner. There's this restaurant here called Pizza Express, and they are everywhere! We decided that we finally had to eat there, so that's where we went for dinner, not really knowing what to expect. It was delicious! They had all kinds of pizza, and you could see them making it as you sat at your table. Pretty cool!
The next day (today, really), we got up early in order to get to Hampton Court Palace before it got too crowded. The Palace was really, really beautiful, especially the gardens! When we visit places like this, sometimes it's unbelievable how long these buildings have been there, especially since we don't really have anything close to it in the United States, being a relatively young country. Everything here has so much history, and it's really cool to be able to see it all. The rest of the day has been pretty relaxing, catching up on things I needed to do. The rest of the week should hold some fun adventures. Until then, happy reading! :)
