I have tried rotating these before uploading
and they are right-side up,
yet when I upload them,
they are sideways.
This happens on Blogger a lot
and it's aggravating.
So if you want to tilt your head
and imagine what these photos should look like,
then be my guest.
on the actual 4th of July.
We took a bus to the U-bahn,
an U-bahn to the train station,
a train to Salzburg,
a bus to the Salzburg airport,
a plane to London,
a Stansead Express train to the city,
the Tube to the hostel
and walked to Hyde Park.
There, we saw Jay-Z,
This seems fitting for the 4th of July,
as I can think of very few entertainers
who love America (or at least Brooklyn) more than Jay-Z.
However, it was a little odd
experiencing this with the British,
since we (Jay-Z, me, Pierce)
were celebrating our independance from them,
which occurred precisely 234 years ago.
Also, the lyrics "Long live the World Trade"
(of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' Empire State of Mind)
seemed to make much less of an impact on the British,
whereas it gave me chills from head to toe.
But I loved the concert itself,
and Beyonce was there.
