March 7 Rihanna

Around noon I went to the local McDonalds for lunch, after which I went to the internet cafe to check a few things out along with checking my mail and cs-manager ect.

After going back to the hotell and gettting ready I went to the O2 for the rihanna concert. The O2 showed to be a huge place which along with the concert arena also holds a lot of eating places, a cinema, exhibitions and some other tings, all under one roof, or rather one tent. It opened only last year.

There weren't any queue yet at the entrance so I walked a bit around in the O2 to check it out, and as I came back to the concert entry a queue was starting, so I joined it. I came into a huge arena which had seating everywhere even on the ground floor. I had a seat on the left wing in the first row quite close to the scene. I cant remember if it were before or after the warm up act - David Jordan who were fairly decent - that some guy came into the crowd to see the concert and everyone started screaming and taking pictures of him, I guess he was some famous person, but I didn't know him. There were a lot of teenage - and some probably even younger - girls at the concert so there were a lot of high voice screaming. Somewhat annoying at some points. Anyway it was a fine concert, she played a lot of the songs that I know.

I decided to wait around a bit after the concert to avoid the worst crowd in the metro and went to get a hot dog. The first place I went sent me to another place close to as she didn't have anymore sausages. However nor did the other place, but she started making some. While I waited she offered a free soda for the wait and asked about the concert and wether or not I thought she looked better irl than on the pictures, to which I said yes. Then she sent me back to the first place as they had some sausages ready. I eat it and went back to the hotel.

March 6 My foot hurts

The day before my right foot started hurting a bit. I didn't think more of it, but today I woke up to it being even worse. It hurt everytime I stepped on it. So I decided not to do too much that day, hoping it would get better for tomorrows concert.

For lunch I got a whopper meal on the local burger king. Form there I took the metro to the victoria station to do some shopping and to have a look around. I bought a london map in some souvenir shop. As I walked around a bit I found a shopping centre at the victoria station and looked around for a top part for my shaver which I had broken. I only found some small shops carrying shavers which didn't have what I needed. I came by an internet cafe aswell but decided not to go in as it seemed quite filled up. So I went back to the WHSmith store I'd seen - a store where they have a lot of magazines - to buy a couple of magazines and some drinks. From there I went back to the hostel.

As I got hungry in the evening I went to explore the local area a bit more and found there to be a lot of eating places, some shops and an internet cafe all quite close to my hotel, including a pizza place I went into to get an hawaii deep pan. In a free thelondonpaper I got on the my way back I saw that channel 4 sent and episode of The Big Bang Theory at 10, which I obviously turned in to see.
