First few days in London!

Wow these past few days have gone by in a blur. I'm so glad that I get to live here for three entire months and take in as much of the city as I can. I've noticed so many similarities and differences between the United States and London already. It has been so amazing to just be in this big city which is at the center of so many things.
Some of the most amazing things are in this city and my school group and I got to see them from a tour bus yesterday. It was very snowy and cold, so it was great to see them from the window and now we are even more excited to see them up close. We drove past amazing museums, Big Ben, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace and St. Paul's Cathedral. I just am taken aback by how old and mighty the buildings here look. I try not to look too much like a visitor, but sometimes I cannot help but look up in awe.
I have noticed how nicely ladies that are my age dress here. They look so unique and bold and amazing. I wish I could dress like them. I have seen a lot of fur; on hats, coats and boots. I want to look for a nice fur hat to keep my ears warm. They also wear a lot of outer clothes that are nice looking, rather than sporty. My northface really stands out among their pea-coats and army jackets. I have also seen a lot of combat boots and Dr. Martens, which made me wish that I had packed mine. I rarely wear them in the US. I love London style! It is all so different but in the same tone.
