Hello to those of you who have taken the time out of your busy lives to find out what is going on in my own. I appreciate it. This journal entry will be the first of a series that will be continuously added to throughout the summer as I gain some much needed, invaluable worldly experience. My own journal entries will be much toned down from the complex and detailed descriptions of my ivy-league amigo, one Luke Iseman, whose cleverly mastered jargin leaves many readers looking for the nearest copy of the 1000 page Oxford English Dictionary. Now that we have gotten the introductions out of the way, it is time to describe today's activities. The cell phone alarm sounded at 6 am and was turned off three times until we finally did get up at 6:15. After exhausting a great deal of funds, we arrived in Salisbury via train and visited its Cathedral. We toured the town and eventually took the forty minute bus ride to Stonehenge. This four thousand-year-old collection of uniquely placed 20 ton stones was a pretty neat site to behold in the middle of a huge green field surrounded by sheep and cows. After seeing Stonehenge, we headed home towards London. On the first train, Luke accidentally left his Visor under a pile of papers. However, he did not realize this until leaving the second train, and after being reassured that he would receive a phone call within an hour regarding the status of his lost Handspring, we left the train station to see Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and the Houses of Lords and Commons. These buildings were the most impressive that we have seen thus far. At approximately 10 pm, we headed towards a pub nearby with a friend from downstairs; the ten minute walk home easily became an hour after a wrong turn or two, and we arrived home at 12:30. Until next time, Mike.
