My family comes to visit this Thursday! Yay! I can't wait to see them. This is the longest I've ever gone without seeing my parents and sister. I might break down with tears of joy when I see them. Thursday can't come fast enough! Since they are going to be here for a week, this was my last free weekend with my friends in London and I made the most of it.
On Friday I went on a day trip to a cute coastal town called Brighton. It would have been better on a nicer day (it was raining) but it was still a fun trip. Friday night was the event I planned through my position on the abroad program student council -- a dinner and disco cruise down the River Thames.
I thought the cruise was a blast! Cruising down the river at sunset provided beautiful views of some of London's best sights. After the sun went down and everyone had dinner, the dancing started. The DJ was really good and the dance floor was crowded in no time. I found it kinda hard to dance because the river was a bit choppy, but it kind of made it even more fun that we were all sliding around running into each other. Apparently some relationship drama erupted toward the end of the cruise, but I was having such a good time that I didn't notice. I wasn't even aware of it until the next day. Urgh. The one thing I'm not going to miss is the drama between some people in this program.
The next time I write it'll be the last time! Tear.
