wandering through week one

I would call this week my official first week in london as I finally started classes, made time for a bit of random wandering and drank more cappuccinos than probably necessary... 

on monday I visited the tate modern gallery and enjoyed the soothing shapes of picasso, kadinsky, pollock and matisse though I was entirely perplexed by some of the installation pieces. a rather cold and rainy day, we stopped on the fourth floor cafe for coffee.

tuesday and thursday were reserved for classes but wednesday I escaped to covent garden to wander around some shops and stop in a cafe for a few hours to read a book for class. I naturally found kate spade & stopped in to look at their new merchandise (obsessed!) and found sass & bide, a cute store of girly knick knacks.
