Yesterday I took the train up to London to look round a little house I might be renting in September. The house is very pretty and it's only a 5 minute walk away from Primrose Hill. However, probably because of it's location, it's very expensive, so my days will be filled with thinking until I have to make my final decision at the end of this week.
Have any of you visited London while the Olympics have been going on? I was super impressed at how clean and pretty the whole city seemed to be. And in stark contrast to usual London life, everyone seemed happy! I met a man on Primrose hill who told me he had come all the way from Texas. When he found out I was from England he was so pleased to meet me that he shook my hand! The whole city had such a lovely atmosphere.
I'm not the most patriotic person - as someone who is so interested in foreign languages and culture I never really spend much time paying attention to my own country, but it has been quite sweet seeing Britain showing off its traditions. I'll miss all the themed sweets and cakes especially!
Have you been following the Olympics? What was your favourite moment? I loved watching the gymnastics and the swimming. It made me happy when other countries won the gold - countries who had clearly worked extremely hard and were getting great results.
