Upon my arrival..

My first few days here were pretty hectic. I got to my new place (which is right by Liverpool Street Station) and quickly realized just how much I needed to get settled in. Luckily we finished most of it in the first 2 days though and unpacking didn’t take too long. We ended up going to this one place to get some furniture, called Argo’s, and this was literally the strangest/most old school purchasing experience I have had! You had to pick things out of a catalogue, type them into a machine to see if they were in stock, write the codes down, and then pay for them and wait in a que for people in the store to get them out of the back room. The main problem was that we didn’t even get to see the items before purchasing them! A bit frustrating when they ended up being pretty poor quality. Good thing I learned early on never to go to Argo’s!

Onto more positive notes, the area I live in is unreal. I live just 3 minutes from the tube and there are a ton of restaurants and pubs/bars just walking distance from my place. I live right near food halls, markets (Brick Lane http://www.visitbricklane.org/ and Spitalfields http://www.visitspitalfields.com/) and shopping as well! Basically I live in a very dangerous area in terms of my budget.

Last night I met up with some friends who live here. We went for dinner at this Mexican place in Covent Garden called Wahaca (highly suggest). It was a really fun environment and the food was yummy! We met up with some more friends after and all headed out to a bar (Los Locos) close to the restaurant.
