Feeling like P. Diddy. Oh, yes. Upon the urging of others, I did indeed choose Tick Tock by Kesha for this post. Granted, beyond the first few lines the song fails to capture the essence of the moment, it's just the first few lines are so fitting, and having just listened to Julia singing it on the bus to the airport, I really had no choice.
Last night we landed in London without trouble. We did encounter some minor difficulties while trying to figure out where to catch our bus to the hotel. On the positive side, we got to see a lot of the London airport. Not a lot of people can claim to have seen 4 of the 5 terminals of Heathrow in one visit.
So the picture is a little blurry, but it still captures the mood of last night. Plus, our big group moving around Heathrow was like an amoeba, a blob with ill defined borders, so Julia's fuzzy outline illustrates that well. And of course there is the key question: Which bus/coach stop?
We did manage to leave the airport and had a comfortable evening in the hotel. Although it was up bright and early again this morning, grab a quick breakfast at the hotel (as in throw food into a paper bag before the bus leaves quick), and off to the airport.
It seems like much of what we spoke about yesterday applies today. We're sitting in an airport very early in the morning and still rather tired. This time, however, we get to listen to announcements in British accents and French.
I think you can also feel the excitement growing in the group. This morning, despite being groggy, we were all ready to go. Like the song lyrics, in some sense we were feeling like P. Diddy. First, we are in London. Second, we are officially on spring break. Third, we are actually going to Abu Dhabi. Today. In about 10 hours we will be in the U.A.E. How crazy is that?
got my glasses- I'm out the door - I'm gonna hit this city (Let's go)
