Ok, so it wasn’t really lazy, because a large portion of the weekend was spent catching up on homework. But this weekend was refreshing because my flatmates and I didn’t have any major field trips planned.
On Thursday, my flatmates Faith, Jacob and I went to see Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Go see it if you like movies whose plots you can’t follow. (In all seriousness, it was pretty complex if you haven’t read the book, but I still had a lot of fun spending Thursday evening with my friends and Linda and Charine from the SU London Student Life office!)
On Friday, we visited the Science Museum. We saw some pretty cool exhibits and best of all, the museum was FREE! Most of the museums are, which is great for a student budget.
Saturday, Faith, Jacob and I returned to Brick Lane (we went with SU a few weekends ago) to buy
bagels beigels from Beigel Bake. We got enough for the week; they’re so good!
Later on, we went on a Winston Churchill-focused walking tour around London with Charine and some other SU students/staff.
Faith and I rounded out the weekend with dim sum on Sunday at New World. It was my first dim sum experience, and it was certainly an authentic one. The waitresses came around with carts and we selected which dishes we wanted. We got spring rolls, pork and prawn dumplings, another type of prawn roll and a crispy mushroom roll. It was surprisingly filling and cost us less than £15!
I’m not doing anything too special this week except, you know, GOING TO ISTANBUL. I can’t believe I leave Thursday. Be on the lookout for a lengthy post next weekend!
