Hello London

Well, I’m finally here! It’s my 2nd month in London and it has been quite an experience so far.
My arrival at Heathrow airport was not as smooth as I thought it would be as i had to go thought medical check as I did not do it before I left India. So i had to spend jolly good 2 Hrs at the airport.
I lived with my friends at Kingsbury and it was real fun but i had to move out as it was really far from my school. Now I live with a family in west Ealing as tenant and it’s really nice. There is British English man with his Chinese wife and their 10 years old son Anthony. I get along with him very well as we both have same interest and that is Computer games 😛
My school is fantastic its huge and there are many nice people around There is so much to do in London if you have art background, I mean I have been to 3 photography Exhibitions, 2 art Exhibitions, have been attending London Film festival and soon will be attending an video installation art (I am really excited about that)
The street is crowded with double deckers, taxis, tours, motorcycle, and people. Public transportation is widespread and makes it extremely easy to get around town w/o a car.
I’m slowly settling in. The concept of “Study Abroad” suddenly became a reality. I’m not just in London for a visit, but here for two years. That realization, often called culture shock, was a little bit frightening at first but I am becoming more comfortable with it.

Aww, that's so awesome. I wish you the best of luck! It's so nice that you're staying with a family and getting along with the kid. It must be great! I wished an exchange student came to stay with us, but I'd be afraid of going overseas and staying with someone :o haha.

Oh yeah, it is awesome. Traveling is one of the things that I love the most.

Thank you! I'm very proud of being part of the community ^^, You let me know if there is anything special you would like me to do for it. Like changing the layout and whatnot - I remember reading you wanted to change it - I hope it's not a problem that I organize the tags, they look a little cluttered. I'm on a winter break so I have plenty of free time :P
