Recently a comparison of our trip to London and Hogwarts has been suggested. Ever since I read the first Harry Potter, I wanted to go to Hogwarts and it seems I'm getting my wish or at least the closest thing possible. I've had rock cake, visited Platform 9 3/4, and walked around London. But what is most like Hogwarts is my life here in the London Centre. I live on the 3rd floor even though there are 5 landings before it. As a matter of fact there are some days I think it moves like the staircases in Hogwarts. We have wonderful meals that await us each night (though they won't just appear when I'm on Kitchen crew). And finally, I live in a dorm full of other girls who often congregate in our drawing room (or common room). It's a wonderful experience just living here and add all the historic sites and beautiful English gardens and well I'm sure these next few months will be something I fondly remember the rest of my life. I am grateful to be here. Thank you Mom & Dad.
