Our Journey is almost finished, but we have to enjoy it until the end. That’s why today, we visited the Greenwich meridian, a place full of history and a lot of interesting things. As always, we started our day at 8:30 in the morning and, at 9:30, we left the residence to go to the Greenwich meridian. It was a beautiful sunny day. We went by boat from Westminster station and travelled around 1 hour through the River Thames until we reached our final stop.
In Greenwich, you can find a lot of interesting things such as some of the artefacts used to measure the earth and an explanation of how scientists concluded where the meridian passed through. You can also visit the house where the astronomers lived and see some replicas of the telescopes they used; they also explained to us how time zones work. Finally, all of us took the most wanted photograph, with one foot on each side of the earth. The Greenwich complex was not too big, so, at 13:00, we left it and returned by tube.
We had a free afternoon, so most of us went to Picadilly Circus to buy the last souvenirs, clothes and toys of the journey. We returned to the residence at 18:30 to have dinner and, at 19:30, we left the residence again for our final visit of the journey: Picadilly at Night. It was full of people and almost all the stores were open. We arrived to the residence at about 23:00 to finish getting everything ready and rest for the two long days that are coming.
Everybody is happy and we all think time passed too quickly. The objectives of the journey were completed, practice our English and have a good time with our friends and teachers while we visit a new country.
