arrived in England this morning. Staying at my aunt’s house, my dad’s sister. So far it’s been a good day.
I’ve been awake since 3pm England time yesterday (10am Toronto time), so I’m ridiculously tired. Drank two cups of coffee on the plane (red-eye flight) and one cup of coffee just a little while ago, and that seems to be keeping me awake. Coffee has a pretty big effect on me. Planning to stay awake till nighttime here so that I can have a decent sleep schedule.
my aunt’s got two sons, one 7 year old and one 19 year old. So far we’ve basically just played a ton of video games (Sonic and Mario at the London Olympics, Call of Duty, LoX: Twilight Princess, Mario Kart…) and also this game called… actually I can’t remember, but it’s not a video game and it’s actually pretty fun despite the simple set up.
also got to see some other cousins on both my mum’s and dad’s side. Tomorrow I’ll be trying on a salwar khameez that my mum’s sister has for me to wear for Eid (popular opinion that it’s going to be on Sunday). If it doesn’t fit, we get to go on a shopping trip.
tonight we’re having chicken wraps for dinner. Tomorrow we start fasting again since our travels are over. They break their fast about 10 minutes after we do in Canada, and their sehri (suhoor) is about an hour earlier, so it shouldn’t be too bad.
so far a good trip
