Back in the USA

Ok I have tried to post this for several days but my computer was being really weird. So this is a little late but here it is anyway. I am back in Texas! I had to jump right into student teaching so I'm still a little tired but it is good to be home. I miss Budapest and Europe but I'm glad to be back to my own bed and actually having a couch just to relax and watch tv on. I'm glad to be back where people in general are friendlier. And I'm glad to be back with friends and family. Thank you all for putting up with my gushing and pictures about Europe. Here are some final pictures from our overnight in London. Molly's boyfriend is in London for the semester so he took us around town and we really had a whirlwind tour of London. We saw the outsides of Big Ben, Parliament, St. Paul's Cathedral, Globe Theater, Tower Bridge, Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and then went to Piccadilly Circus. We also went to the traditional English Pub and had Fish 'n' Chips -- yum. Oh and the best part of our trip was carrying our 4 suitcases (that were right at the 50 pound limit) and our carry-ons from the train station to our hostel and then up 4 stories of a steep, narrow staircase to our room since there was of course no lift. No but we really did have a good time in London -- I would love to go back someday for obviously a longer stay. I hope I get to see all of you soon...Joanie & Kelly, I promise I will be at Altamesa on Sunday.

London Pictures

Look kids! Big Ben, Parliament. (European Vacation, anyone?)

We were there at night so none of these pictures are that great.

I think we are in front of Parliament here.

St. Paul's Cathedral -- Where Princess Diana got married :)

In Piccadily Circus.

View from the London Eye - this huge ferris wheel that we rode where you can pretty much see the whole city.

Ok so this one is from our last day in Budapest, not London, but this was Molly and my favorite statue in Budapest - it was just so random and cute.

My sweet roommates made me this fun sign.
