Something that I've been wanting to do since before I ever even dreamed of coming to London, but could never seem to make happen, is go see tennis at Wimbledon. First of all tickets are near impossible to get, it's all lottery-ified. If you don't have tickets, you can just randomly go wait in line, and hope that enough people leave for the day so that you can be granted access. Sometimes you don't get in. So as you can imagine, it's a little hard to rally the troops for this. But a lovely friend of my put her foot down, forced us all to go, and even negotiated a date when I was available, and away we went. After queuing over two hours, we were in. And it was awesome!

It was one of those days where I felt totally amazed that I was in London. And after being here 2 years and 10 months I just don't get those feelings too often.

not appreciating london eh? maybe keep a picture of dc on your computer to remind you what awaits once your visa expires. i thought that may cheer u up a bit!

Jealous. I've never been.

Your Mum is really jealous!!

so, so jealous!

I was there the same day in the same court, number 1. Brilliant time, although I left my brolly under my seat which I am a bit sad about

You're not feeling amazed that often any more because you're getting used to the city and possibly even the country, like how you're used to the US. You can go and live in a different country if you want to feel amazed again, but you're just going to end up feeling how you're feeling now!.
