Canadians with a difference

We're in London babyyyyyyyyyyyyy

I love itttttttttt in spite of the 6pm close of just about every store in the nation... the dry, drab, rainy weather...

I Love the fish and chips with vinegar and their Covent garden with its beautiful theaters and fantastic shops and nice bars#

I love sainsburys with its endless variations of chocolates and cookies and... oh Gosh I think I'm gonna get fat here...

I love their double decker buses... the tubes and their funny accents and their oyster cards and travel cards

I love the Gallery... had a BLast there last night with my girlies... the DJ kept shouting out the 'girls from Canada'... I went to the bathroom and two lesbians approached me with 'how sexy I was'... I'm beginning to wonder if I give off a vibe... nah... I think it's the legs.... lol. Danced to every song till we left... fantastic cocktails... love the music here and the people are sooo nice...

I think we look like obvious tourists cos I sometimes dress abnormally(to them at least)... when they're bundled up in jackets and furs and uggs... we step out in flats, skirts and a trench... But we're Canadian... we're used to worse...

Next up: Lunch with some friends at oxford circus today... clubbing tonight... a wedding tomorrow... Karaoke later on tomorrow... and other things that will unfold in due time.

LOVING THIS!

Wow overwhelmed, you are indeed having fun! I envy you. I wish I can just pack my back and go over to London. Wishful thinking, I'm going to be stuck at the office for months on end.

London is my country of birth, but I've been living in naija since like foreva,wish I was there though.
Have fun and don't spend all your hard earned money o!

The green-eyed monster just popped out of my ear to confirm how jealous I am.

Way to go...have fun...I lived in London for 4 years and I was miserable but I always seem to have a blast whenever I go back for a visit...possibly because I know that I don't have to live with the dreary weather and 'the shops that close at 6.00pm'

I look forward to reading more about your adventures on that side of the pond!

Heehe! That's one of the things I couldn't stand either when I had just moved here form America . . . . stores closing so early!!!! Like 6pm is when I'll usually leave home to go shopping, Lol.

Chocolates and cookies?! I sure did gain a little bit of weight in very little time, Lol.

I can totally relate with this post, hehhe.
