the long plane ride

Well, I did all that I said I would do. I got on a plane, flew across the ocean and did something new. The flight went well. I got maybe 2 hours of sleep so when we landed at 6 in the morning, I was beyond exhausted. Couple that with the fact that my room had no toilet paper, well I was just a mess. My roomie, Jessica, showed up a few hours after I did and when she did we started putting the room straight. I'm sure sharing a room for 20 years has prepared me for this very moment. The closet has to be smaller than the one I shared back home, plus the bathroom has enough room for you to ONLY stand up in. So dad, thanks for the tiny bathroom back home. It finally is a good thing!
We just met with Michael, the on-site coordinator for my program. He gave us goodies (even though we already paid for them, it was still nice to get. It felt like freebies!) for our stay which included a London A to Z guide, a map of the bus route, and the tube stops. We also received our cell phones so let me know if you want it. I can receive calls for free :)
Well, I almost took a nap on my computer. AGAIN. So I'm gonna go get a nap before we all go out for dinner. Pictures to come later...

who would have thought our tiny house prepared you for this trip? Go figure! God has been so gracious to you so far and I am confident of His watch care over you until we see you in December.

Glad you made it! And yes, I'll take that cell phone number! -PT
