You can’t say that the first week back at Uni was a soft start…

After a nice and adventures Christmas break, spent in Mexico and the Bahamas together with my family, it was time to fight the jet lag and do the last bit of revision before the facing the dreaded “exam week”. On Tuesday I traveled across London, to a giant exhibition hall where my first exam in Economics took place. Due to a massive tube strike taking place the day before, I got up VERY early, ensuring myself not to miss the assessment. Writing an exam along with more than 1600 other people, ran surprisingly smooth and time just flew by. The next day a coursework was due, followed later on in the week by another final in Organisational Behaviour. Walking out from that last exam, with an aching hand and drowsy eyes, I was shocked of what was happening outside the exhibition hall. It was snowing! In London! And I was wearing canvas shoes…

After a rough week, I was happy to expect a friend from Sweden to visit for a few days. We started the weekend of with some nice wine, followed by a good night out, at the trendy (and slightly weird) nightclub Cirque de Soir, were they gave us a full on circus show. The following days were spent at nice coffee shops, street markets and museums, enjoying everything the city has to offer, including the classic London weather…
