Okay, okay, so before you give me a hard time for not posting in over a week I would just like to tell to take it easy. I just got over the flu, like, yesterday. Heckle me now, I dare you. That’s what I thought. It is hard to be mean to a girl who just got over the flu she contracted in a foreign country. I even had to go home sick from school (anyone who knows me knows how devastating that is). In less than a month I’ve had both a terrible cold and the flu. I have quickly become the originator of viral plague in my flat. Did I mention how much all of them love me?
However, I fought being sick and still tried to pretend I was fine, which didn’t actually work out as well as it did in my mind. I went to Brick Lane (this really cool Indian district) on Friday night and the most delicious grilled tandoori ever. Then, we went to Camden on Saturday. This place was amazing and funky and really cool and had some of the coolest stuff I’ve seen in London. There was even an entire stall dedicated to Big Band Theory stuff so, naturally, I was geeking out. Camden is essentially this huge outdoor market with food, clothes, tattoo parlors and people from literally every walk of life. Incredible.

On Monday I went on a tour of Westminster and Parliament, including both the house of lord and the house of commons. It was so cool!!!! I got to see MPs, or member of parliament if you aren’t up on your British jargon, and basically learn all about the governing system of the UK. I even saw how to get to David Cameron’s office, where they vote and the thrown of the queen when she comes to open parliament. There were no pictures allowed on the inside, but I got some more lovely shots of my dear friend Ben.
Well that’s all for now. Just in case you were wondering, I was finally healed by Tuesday. Which is good because I was really sick of being sick. I guess laying in bed and being lazy will do that for you. Turns out all I needed was a weekend in London, funny tasting Jamaican Ginger Root soda, and a really bad chick flick to get over the flu. Feel free to use this exact and precise prescription the next time you feel under the weather, doctors orders.
