Happy New Year!

Hi,

I haven’t written for a long time. I will do better this year, it’s a new years resolution!

I wish you all a “Happy New Year 2010“.

Me and some friend from my hall were at the Southbank to see the Fireworks. It was really amazing. Earlier that night we could watch the partially eclipse of the moon. Then we rushed to th Thames to get a good site for viewing. We had to wait more than 3 hours in the cold night. Meanwhile everybody wanted to go into the only shop on our site (Westminster bridge),

so that there was queuing of 30 minutes to get in. The owner of the shop seemed to have made some special new year prices since the indications of the price on the racks were removed.
Queuing for the Dixxies were approximately 30-40 minutes, so after starting to drink happily to brave the cold, and having waited the first time for the toilet, we understood that drinking and queuing were inevitabely interconnected. So we reduced our alcohol input in order to enjoy the fireworks relieved.

But the long waiting was worth it! Just watch the movie on youtube.

The explosions were so heavy that you could feel the vibrations. The whole London Eye was chock-full of explosives and firing constantly so that you thought that it will fall into Thames immediately. Sadly the spectacle was over after 9 minutes.
And punctually when the fireworks have ended, it started to snow.

Cheers
Gabriel
