First off, I apologize for not blogging until now. We have been so busy this last week and a half that I haven't had time to sit down and reflect on everything that I've done so far! Now, onto the post.
When we (the MC London semester group) arrived in London, we hit the ground running. We walked around a bit, ate some pretty mediocre burgers, and met our London History and Culture professor, and we walked some more. By the end of the day we were exhausted, overwhelmed, sore, and a little homesick. I'm not going to lie, I thought I had made the most expensive mistake in my life! (Foreshadowing: I'm fine now) After a good night's sleep, however, I was fine. Some of us went to the little park that's right by our hotel after breakfast.
The squirrels here are very friendly if they think you have food.
I think Trafalgar Square is my favorite spot in London, so far. Just like Big Ben, and Westminster Abbey, it is just so typically London. It's a beautiful spot, and I can't wait to go back.
My group for a citywide scavenger hunt. We are in Trafalgar Square!
You can see Big Ben from the square.
The enormous statue dedicated to Nelson in the middle of Trafalgar
The famous Harrod's department store. I was afraid to touch anything, because everything was so expensive.
I know this is a very small post, but we are about to leave to go see a play called Captain of Kopenick. I will try to update again tomorrow about Stonehenge and Bath!
