Luckily, my new Australian friend Caroline was staying in the same hostel and headed to London next, so I asked her if she could do me a HUGE favor and bring it to me in London. She graciously agreed (seriously, meeting awesome people when traveling is the best!), and so we were set to meet in London on the 15th. After I met up with Caroline to get my phone and go for tea, I was supposed to head to my friend Nicole's apartment on the other side of London.
Speaking of meeting fantastic people when traveling, I met Nicole in the summer of 2007 when we were both in a French immersion program at l'Université Laval in Quebec City. We were part of a group of four girls who were inseparable during those 6 weeks. She's hilarious and has one of the best fashion senses I've ever seen. She's Colombian but was living in London, Ontario when we met, and has been jet setting ever since. (I think she's possibly lived in my more countries than I've even been to.) Anyway, she was living and teaching in London at the time, and when I told her I was coming through and would love to meet up, she graciously offered to host me for the night!
So, back to me in London on May 15th. First I strolled around a (very short) while. Basically just getting out of the train stations. See?
Anyway, I wanted to have WiFi access when waiting for Caroline to arrive at Liverpool Station, in case she needed to contact me (since I didn't have my phone). So, I parked myself at this exact KFC on Liverool Street across from the station to sit in that chair on the left, eat some fries, connect to WiFi, and wait.
