This past weekend there was a music festival in Hyde Park called Hard Rock Calling. We didn’t get tickets but we sat outside the fenced area and enjoyed his music! We cheated but I bet after you read this you will to because next weekend is the Barclays Wireless festival where you can do the same thing.
As you can see a lot of people had the same idea as us. We brought some beer and a towel and camped out for a couple hours in the park.
We didn’t know what to film but we wanted to record the music so sorry in advance for the random shots.
You better believe it we will be there again on Saturday at 4pm for KeSha!!!

Catching up…..Read about The Queue here.
Tips for Wimbledon:
-Read the size requirements of bags that can be brought into the grounds and how much alcohol you can bring in.
-Go with a group
-Have a picnic while you are there
The day was so much fun and we had amazing weather. The rest of the story can be told through photos.
And thanks to David who gave me his Centre Court ticket for the last set of the Soderling/Hewitt match!

Wandering around on this ok-weathered day I stumbled upon a group of people on a street corner looking up. I didn’t have anywhere to be so I decided to find out what as going on.
Everyone was staring at 3 bee keepers figuring out what to do with this giant bee’s nest that was formed on a traffic light!
This is why I ALWAYS carry my camera and flipcam in my bag. You just never know when you’ll need it!
I stood there for a good 10 minutes and nothing happened so I left. The bee keepers didn’t even know what to do or maybe they were waiting for the right moment but either way I got a little bored so I left. I’ll see if there are any newspaper articles to follow up with. In the mean time I’ll leave you with a little video I made (because I have way too much time on my hands right now).

Being a student with a lot of other Expats has its advantages. Some classmates and I went to an amazing Indian lunch last week at Punjab Restaurant in Covent Garden.
Prachi took control of the ordering (since she is from India) and ordered pretty much the whole menu so we could try everything! We were beyond full and so happy with the choices.
I can’t remember what we ordered but I know there was lots of lamb, chicken, veggies, rice, naan and dessert. Prachi said this is the closest you will get to a homemade Indian meal here in London so I’ll take her word for it. It was delicious and I even got a doggie bag which I’m really excited about. Can’t wait to go back to Punjab Restaurant!!
