And finally I decided I was old enough to go to London on my own...
31-JAN-2008

And finally I decided I was old enough to go to London on my own...

I was 18 at long last. So I went to London on my own to study English and to feel adult
When I came back home (I didnít want to go back home, I adored London) my parents and grandparents were anxiously waiting for me at the airport, since they had not seen me for months.
When I came out from the passengersí control area, my grandmother practically fainted looking at me. I was dressed like in this photo, which was taken at the time of my departure from London and besides that I wore also a kind of topee or pith hat I had bought in a flea market ( itís partially visible in the photo, another girl was wearing it temporarily).
The gentleman by me was my British landlord. I think his name was Mike.

LOL Your poor grandmother. Hope she is okay. Leaving home can have drastic changes in our lives. As you have mentioned before it looks like you were a bit on the wild side.

Who could ever resist you?... then *or* now?! You're just too cute for words.
Happy New Year, Marisa!

Amazing how a trip can transform the personality. I had 10 months in europe in '77 when i was 20 and came back to home a new person. A wonderful snapshot.

You look so happy to be finally on your own! Of course, parents and grandparents probably think otherwise. Really nice chronicle of your life you have shown us here in your gallery!

At about that time, I would have visited London with my camera. With those looks, I wonder if I could have missed you??
