Across the Pond: Day 5

Routine has set in. My mornings are fairly similar now, although I’ve discovered the client I’m working at has a cafeteria in their building. While I feel like I should be “making more” of my time here, I can’t exactly take the morning off.

Work has been going exceedingly well. We’ve finished what were thought to be the main portions well ahead of schedule. So… that’s good.

Also, as much as I hate to admit it, I’m definitely sick. The last few days have been a drag, but it’s not affecting me overly much. In fact, today I went out to lunch with some of my temporary co-workers again. The food was excellent (as it should have been, considering the price), although prices widely varied from what I’m used to back home.

I was boring again in the evening, mostly in part to being sick. Interestingly, the hotel has a spa which I finally checked out. By spa they mean a sauna and steam room, but it was still very nice. A hot tub would’ve been cool, though.

Oh! The news has been very interesting, lately. In addition to the world news of Wikileaks and Julian Assange that I’ve been following closely, there were riots today in London. Students are protesting a rise in their college fees. At one point, the riots turned violent and property was destroyed, as well as the Prince’s car getting attacked (side note: the police are now under investigation for why the let the freaking Prince Heir Apparent get caught in a student riot).

Interesting times.
