Went to Manchester on Saturday for Taco Bell and Christmas shopping with Gaby, and had a lovely time.
I was then in Manchester from Tuesday until today to apply for my Chinese Visa, but, long story short, I cannot apply while in the UK. They didn't inform me of this anywhere on their website, which is exceptionally frustrating, and made for a wasted trip. However, I did have two fun evenings with Nicola (as she lives right outside of Manchester in Cheshire, so we stayed at hers). Both nights we went out dancing.
I was able to do all of this because I don't have class on Thursdays, and because my professor cancelled my Wednesday lecture for a strike.
|We were on public transportation a lot. Here is one of the many times.|
|Nicola's beautiful family home in Cheshire :) My first home stay in England! Also: Nicola lives in Lancaster, but this is her home-home|
|At Nando's after the Visa fiasco. We ate some delicious chicken, and a colored a pretty picture.|
Anyway, nothing too exciting otherwise. I've mainly just been working on papers. Yay.
