In the summer of 1993 Paul, Nate and Laura went to England. We'd like to say that after three weeks we returned to the United States with a better understanding of English life and culture. Unfortunately we were young and stupid so all we came back with was stories about hanging around the place we stayed watching "Telly". Also we went to see Jurrasic Park... great flick!
Nate kept a journal of his travels in Great Britain... Paul and Laura kept similar books but filled them with silly drawings. Presented here for the first time is Chef "Nate" Elf's English Travel Journals.... enjoy.

Sunday August 8, 1993
I just woke up. While we were sleeping she's been knocking on the door. Got to kill her now.
We played poker and I won. We were playing for keeps so I made about a 43 pence profit. I just discovered that the sensor light only senses a certain height so as soon as it turns off, I'm going in!
Laura washed the dishes and the table after dinner. If she's good maybe we'll let her watch Telly. Maybe!
I killed a big bug. Gross.
[Today's grade: F- times 2. The worst one yet! A true waste of a day. I'd feel guilty having such an uneventful day hanging around in my apartment by myself.]
End of Day 17
Next time: We see some Stone Circles and I teach Laura how to spell!
