We went to Leceister Square (and passed GO to collect $200) to find something to do. We stumbled across a comedy show for GBP5 ea starting at 9.30pm. so we went for dinner first, gourmet burgers...YUM. although i got so ripped off with my fries...2quid for about 15 of 'em. I wasn't happy! u all know how I like me fries!!! haha anyway...Comedy show was in a random room in a hotel, about 100 ppl there. The main guy Inkey Jones (http://www.inkeyjones.com/) was a crack up. Although anything u could possibly get offended over he had a joke about... nothing was sacred! Had a lot of laugh out loud moments, and a few tense when audience members became quite "involved". Then there was another comedian guy who was blind (well I don't think that was part of the act). He spoke VERY loud and I didn't find him funny at all, Seemed to tickle Niki though as he was laughing alot.
Niki got up at 8.30am to watch the All Blacks with a few of the keen flatmates whilst I slept. thankfully they won so Niki was in a good mood for the day :) During which he received numerous texts from drunk mates back home! We had a bank appointment at 12 to change our account etc... took us an hour to get there and then they went through a fricken long as interview, filling in the computer system thing (and the lady could not type so it took forever!) with us and ended up not being able to offer us a different account!!!!! GRRRRR Everything is so backwards here. We have to go back in 3 months when they can see money's regularly going in.
After that we headed to brixton to catch up with Lee-Ann and Spence as the Brixton Country Fair was on. Then it rained and rained... needless to say i wasn't in a good mood! Luckily it cleared so we decided to give it a go and went up to the park. Awesome "fair" not very country though! was a massive area, stalls for everything, lots of carnival rides, saw a "birds of prey" presentation (awesome vulture, who got bored and flew off into the crowd!) and a big music stage...more Bob Marley :) but hey it does seem like 80% Jamaicans there! so we had a few drinks, food and i went on a ride (Niki was too wussy). We also had to run for cover 2 or 3 times when the rain decided to come back. Lee-Ann had to shoot off to work at 6.30pm but the fair finished up at 8 anyway. so we called into the pub for a drink on our way home. Got home at about 10.30pm and then read our books! haha Nannas we are :) It was nice to relax
We headed out to the Tower of London. Of course we were running later than we had planned to be, then decided to go to the tourist office to grab some info on other activities...then couldn't find it! so hours later...we finally got on a ferry down the Thames to The Tower (awesome views). Then waited 40mins in line for tickets!! we are silly, there are plenty of opportunities to pre-buy tickets but we're unorganised! Anyway so we finally got in at 2.30pm. Took part in a free guided tour which was headed by one of the Yeoman Warden, theu guy with a funny outfit (yes they actually live there!). We saw the resident ravens which are massive. The highlight of the visit was seeing the Crown Jewels! WOW bling bling :)
It then took us hours to get home as we soo didn't know where we were and a few tube stations in the city were closed! We are quick becoming like Londoners..impatient when we have to wait 4mins for a tube :)
