yesterday i went to church. then a bunch of us went to kensington palace. we toured the place. i got to see princess diana's dresses. they were so pretty. then we all went on a picnic to holland park. it was near notting gate. it was alot of fun. after we got home a ton of kids came over and we played mafia. that is such a fun game. then most of the kids left and the rest of us stayed up talking.

A group of girls and i went to the London Temple! It was about a 40 minute train ride away. It was so pretty there. There were so many flowers on the grounds. There were also these little ponds. Its so amazing how people are in a place at a right time. We get to the temple and one of the older girls goes in to talk to the temple workers. Turns out the people at the desk in the front are one of her friends grandparents from Utah. They both know each other so the temple workers make room for us.Then we met this random guy from California the day before and he turned out to be mormon. So he ended up going to the temple with us. We just showed up to the temple hoping we could all get in because we kept calling and didnt get an answer. Anyways, if we didnt have that guy that we had met, the temple wouldnt have had enough priesthood holders on staff. Isnt that just amazing though! The temple was just so beautiful inside. tonight i went and saw "the producers" with the group. it was a really good musical. afterwards some of us went and got milkshakes from ed's diner.

saturday we slept in till 12. then we drove to this city about 40 minutes away. i actually drove, it was just like the u.s. except the signs dont have words on them, they are just blank. we went shopping there. all the shops closed at 4 so we didnt have that much time. that night one of her friends came over and we watched this big european show that happens once a year. each country picks someone to sing and then they compete and all the countries vote at the end of the show. it was pretty interesting.

Wednesday i went to the art musuem for class. The whole group went and saw Shakespeare's "The Tempest" at the globe. We had to stand the whole time because it was supposed to be like it was back in the olden days. Later on a bunch of us went out to eat for Jana's birthday. We went to this Italian restaurant. That was really good, i got a pizza.

Thursday I didnt have an assignment for my art class. I packed for Scotland. Then Becca, Chris, Adam and i all went out to eat. We went to Wagamamma's because Adam had never been there before. The boys paid. What nice british boys! The whole night i kept telling Adam how it was bad to smoke. On the way home he told me to get people to tell him that it was bad. He didnt think i would do it but i did. The three people i asked agreed with me. It was funny. The last guy that i met was from the U.S. so we ended up talking. Turns out he was the manager of the band Queen! Can you believe that. I asked him if i could meet the band but they were all scattered around London for the night, so it wasnt possible.

Friday we had to wake up and get on the bus at 4. It was so early. We got to Scotland around 10. We checked into the hostel, which was kind of disgusting. Then we went to the Edinburgh Castle. That was so pretty. We also walked all around Edinburgh. That night we went to this restaurant called "Frankenstein" we thought it would be a good place to go to for Friday the 13th.

Saturday we all went to Stirling. We went to the Wallace Monument. That was pretty cool. The tour guy told us all about the war that was in Braveheart, he also said that movie is mostly false. Then we went to another castle. Then about 8 of us went out to eat at an Indian restaurant. I am in love with Indian food. Then we got on the train and went back home.

Sunday was a free day. So a bunch of us went to North Berwick. That was such a cute and small town on the coast. We played on the beach for awhile. Then we walked around the town for a bit. Got something to eat and took it back to the beach and ate it. Then we got back on the train.

Today we got back to London. I did laundry today, that cost 10 bucks to do one load! I could not believe that.

Thursday we went to the British Museum. That had some really cool things. Then I went and got fish and chips with becca, jess, and rose. That was all right. Not what I expected. That night the whole group went on a "Jack The Ripper" tour. That was interesting but pretty disgusting.

Friday we got on the bust at 9 and went to Bath. It sounds like Bahhth. That was a really cool town. Very pretty. We went to the Roman Baths. They were so cool. Then we went and toured a Abbey. For the rest of the day we walked around the town. Then we went to the Bed and Breakfast. After we unpacked we went and looked around Salisbury. Becca, Jess, Megan and I went to this Italian restaurant. It was so good.

Saturday we went to this old church and walked around Salisbury. Then we went to these ruins of a castle. Then it was off to Stonehenge. That was really neat. I cant believe those rocks are so old! After the group got home we all went out to a pub. That was tons of fun. We were celebrating Brian's 19th birthday. We danced to some Irish music and other kinds of music. Americans know how to dance, all of the British people would come over and watch. Becca, Jess and I had some British boys meet us at the pub. So we talked with them for awhile.

Sunday a lot of people went to church at the singles ward. Then Rose, Brian and I went to the museum to do a art assignment. Then we went to the internet café. I tried to call my mom to tell her happy mother's day but she wasn't home.

Yesterday we all went to Dover. We took a train that was about 2 hours. We got to see the countryside, which was pretty nice. We went on a boat tour. Then we went up to the Dover castle. We went on a tour though the Dover cliffs. That was really interesting. There was a hospital and a lot of other military equipment from the 30's and 40's. Then we went and toured the Dover castle. I really liked doing that. Walking through the castle was so much fun.

Today I went to school. Then I went to the art museum. I had to look at some sculptures. Then about 15 of us went and bought tickets to Chicago. Then I went and picked up my laptop. I finally have internet in my flat! Then I went and watched the play. It was so good. I really liked it.
