     Today we woke up and departed the Lake District for Preston.  Once in Preston we met our tour guide went on a walking tour of Preston.  The tour was for our religion class so it was a church history tour.  We saw the different church historical sites such as where the first baptism in England took place and different spots where apostles preached.  It was pretty interesting, but we were all a little tired and burned out.  After the tour we had lunch in Preston.  We then loaded the coach and continued our tour by stopping in a little town called Ripchester, and a second one called Downham.  We then loaded the coach again and headed Chorley to visit the grounds of the Preston Temple.  From Chorley we headed to Liverpool.  We were all stoked when we arrived to our hostel and discovered that the beds were already made as making our beds at each hostel was getting old.  For dinner we all headed over to a large mall with a lot of good restaurants and shops.  Annie, Lauren, and I enjoyed a delicious dinner at Pizza Hut (Pizza Hut is a sit-down restaurant here) and I can honestly say it that American pizza has never tasted better.  We finished dinner and then headed back to the hotel where a group of us fell asleep to Pride and Prejudice.
