Saturday, Part 2
Guess what? I found the Goodness Cafe! It was empty. As in, no furniture or people. And the "G" in its name is covered by a real estate agent's sign. The Goodness Cafe, as in, "Goodness gracious, how many more miles am I going to have to walk before I can use the freaking internet?!"
But it's fine. I caught the tube into the city and I'm sitting in a cafe called "The Breakfast Club." Izzi and Tim brought me the other day. It has a really fun atmosphere, and free wifi. You know, if you don't think about the 2GBP I spent getting here on the tube, or the 3.50GBP I spent at the cafe itself. (Hm, I just realized that was a $7 smoothie...Must remember not to convert to dollars.)
But the benefits make the price worth it. I'm in SOHO, around other young people, in a sunny cafe (it's decorated yellow and orange, and the chalkboard outside the door has the lyrics to Coldplay's "Yellow"), and, best of all, using my own laptop. The cheap internet cafe I was using before was dark, depressing, and cramped, and I had to use public computers.
