Well, I'm happy to say there were no head-on collisions and I'm now safely back at my friends' flat in London. To tell the truth, her driving was quite good. The only close call was due to my own absent-mindedness. I was looking the wrong way while walking across a street. Thankfully, one of my friends managed to grab my arm and stop me from walking into the path of an oncoming car. I hate to think what may have happened had I been alone.
