Today I woke up at around 7:15 and went downstairs to eat breakfast at 7:30. After breakfast, everyone grouped up around a table in the breakfast area to plan out our last day in London. It was really hot in there (at least to me it was) and it took a while for us to make a plan. Eventually, we all made our way out to take a picture in Abbey Road. It was the furthest out, so we decided to start there and work our way down to the other places. We got to the train station to set off to our trip. We successfully made it through one train, but we were expected to get on more than one. Once we got off our first train, we all huddled up near a map of all the stops that every train would stop. It was there that Mrs. Spurlock had the great idea to have the students find the way to each tourist attraction. Sara started to figure out a way to get to Abbey Road first, so it was her job to figure out a way to get there. Since I was her partner, I had to help as well. I was more than happy to help, but to be honest, I am pretty sure that I was absolutely useless. Sara had it all together. I just kind of followed behind her. Jordan tried to take the reins a couple of times, but he eventually figured out that his time to take control would be soon, so he backed off a little bit. After taking another train and walking about a mile and a half, we made it to Abbey Road. We all took pictures like the Beatles had done for their album. As a fan of the Beatles, I really appreciated what we were doing; it meant a lot to me. A lot of people were there to take pictures as well. It was interesting to see groups of people just pause for a photo in the middle of the street. I felt really bad for the people who lived around that area and had to pass through the famous Abby Road. After everyone took a picture to their liking in the middle of the street, it was time to go to the Covent Garden. It was finally time for Jordan to shine and he was delighted to be in charge. DJ had to help him, but Jordan didn't really need it. DJ helped as best as he could. We made it to the Covent Garden, which was just a marketplace filled with shops and street acts. It had a lot of diversity in it, so there was plenty of things to keep everyone occupied. We were let loose for about two hours to do whatever we liked. In those two hours, Sara, Jordan, DJ, and I all ate and shopped in two stores. I spent a LOT of money there, but I couldn't help it. I really enjoyed getting things for my family. From there, we went to the Golden Globe. We made a long journey there from the Covent Garden. There was a lot of walking involved to the point where I couldn't really feel my legs hurting anymore. We finally got to the Globe thanks to Jacob, only to find out that we needed tickets to actually get in. That had everyone wanting to take a bus to our next destination: the Buckingham Palace. So after Mrs. Spurlock, Jordan, and I went to the globe gift shop, Hailey and Alyssa lead the way to the bus stop to go to the Palace. This is where it got interesting. We all made our way onto the bus exhausted and thankful to be sitting down. I sat down near a window so that I can see London as we drove to the Buckingham Palace. What I saw instead was far more interesting. As the bus started to drive off, I saw Jacob outside with a straight face waving goodbye to us. Everyone started to freak out. All the students were telling Mrs. Jones (Jacob’s partner) and Mrs. Spurlock that we had left Jacob. At first they didn't believe us, but eventually Mrs. Spurlock called Jacob and told him to take a cab to the Palace. What had happened was Jacob forgot his bus ticket on the windowsill of his hotel room. That one mistake cost him ten pounds. He was under control the whole time. He didn't freak out at all. So I guess in a way that if someone in our group were to be left behind, we were lucky that it was Jacob because he stayed calm and collected the whole time. After all that drama, we met up at Buckingham Palace. It was beautiful and big. After everyone took pictures in front of the Palace, we all made our way to the Green park. We sat there for about ten minutes resting and we also got ice cream. From there, Jordan and Mrs. Spurlock lead us to the National Gallery because we had time to kill before going to Cleopatra's Needle. After a long walk and two three trains later, we made it to the Gallery. Jordan, Sara, and I looked around and sat down for a bit. All the art was beautiful and I was happy that we stopped by the Gallery. From there, we went to a place to eat called Garfunkel. The food was nice and everyone had a good time. We all got to realize the DJ had a funny new laugh and paying the bill for a big group of people was stressful. We probably spent fifteen minutes figuring out who pays what. We finally made it out of there alive and made our way to Cleopatra's Needle. It was night time by now so London was especially beautiful. We got to the Needle and it was beautiful. Everything was lit up, and it was next to the London eye (which was also lit up). It was amazing. After that, we all went back to the hotel. We probably walked the most that day so everyone was very tired. Overall, the last day in London was eventful and nice. I really enjoyed this trip.
