OUR TRIP TO LONDON. (By Isabel Cantos. 3º ESO-B)
Tuesday March 4th, 2015.
The fourth of March we took the bus at High School door. The bus took us to Malaga's airport.
We all were very nervous but also full of happiness.
Our teacher brought us caps of Sierra Nevada but nobody put them on the trip.
At the airport we had to show our DNI and our trip authorizations but one boy had its
authorizations expired, finally all could be resolved.
The flight was a little tired. We arrived at Gatwick airport, where we took a bus to our hotel, the
Travelodge. The traffic was very heavy and it took us too much to get there.
When we arrived at the hotel the receptionist assigned our rooms, I shared my room with Andrea.
We leaved our cases in the room and began our first visit. First we went to Sant Pancras Station
where we took lots of photograph, then we took the Underground and went to Convent Garden.
Some people there bought souvenirs and have free time to see the shops. After that we had dinner,
we could choose between hot dogs and hamburgers. Then again we took the underground up to
Kingcross Station, that was the nearest stop to our hotel.
It was late when we arrived at the hotel so went sleep but before the receptionist advice us not to
make noise because we could disturb the other customers, however some people made noise.

The next morning Andrea and me made a mistake, we got up one hour before the time. We waited
in our room watching television until we went down for breakfast.
First we went to the Science Museum where our biology teacher gave us a worksheet to do. We
had lunch there and next we went to the Kensington Garden and to Kensington Palace, but we
only saw the outsides gardens because we couldn't enter to the Palace. We saw the Albert's
Monument and took a lot of photographs.
In the afternoon we went to the Natural History Museum, there we saw many dissect animals, one
very interesting was the Dodo bird and a piece of Apollo Moon rock. Later we went to the
Harrods ,the biggest and more expensive shopping centre, but we didn't go in because we were too
many. Then we went to Leicester Square, there we saw interesting buildings and an itinerant singer.
When we arrived to the hotel we had dinner and then we stayed at reception playing cards during a
while. After we went to sleep.

The third day we got up at the right hour, we had breakfast and went to the British Museum.
There we saw many sculptures of the ancient Greek mostly without head and also of the Egyptian
culture, sarcophagus, gigantic beetles and black lucky cats.
We had lunch at China Town. There was a big panda bear in the middle of the street. However no
one of us ate china's food, we ate pizza and then we looked for a Starbucks. In the afternoon we
went to Green Park and to Camden town. At night we had dinner in our hotel.

The fourth day we went to Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guard. There were a lot
of people waiting to see it. After we went to Trafalgar Square and to the National Gallery, there
were a lot of pictures and a black box that depending the way you looked it the picture inside
changed. Then we had free time to have lunch. In the afternoon we went to the Big Ben, there we
took many photograph outside. Near there it's the London Eye, it's a giant observation wheel where
the views of London were fantastic.
