YOU GUYS! YOU GUYS! I’m going to London in a few weeks!!!!! April 15-26 precisely. I can see all the magic happen before me already. The London Eye, Kensington Park, Big Ben, warm brews, the tube, British goods, gypsies, Beatles references, futbol and lovely accents. I. CAN’T. WAIT. Well, actually I can and I most definitely will. You see, this trip is technically a business trip paid for by my company and therefore, I will have to squeeze in as many sites as humanly possible in just one weekend. For those of you who already know the great wonders of London, please give me some pointers on where to visit! It would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime, excuse me while I browse some London tourist spots…
