Update via London
Hello! Well I made it across the pond safe and sound! I've been here a week and am just enjoying myself. My group is just lovely and so much fun. Weve explored several spots, from Westminster (yes I stood where Kate did) to a behind the scenes tour at the natural history museum. There I saw a 40 foot giant squid and some of Charles Darwins original findings from 1800. It was pretty cool! This weekend we spent some time in the outdoor markets. Today was Camden and Portebello. I loooved Portebello. Such fun quirky shops. Tonight we went to a pub to watch the Chelsea game. I love how into football everyone here is! This week we also went to Cambridge. It was here that we experience the extremes of English weather. Literally my dear friends, it went from sunshine to hailing in lightening speed. The city itself was very quaint, with plenty of colleges to check out. We toured the inside of King's College chapel, which was magnificent with all the stained glass. This week is a little bit more slow paced. So hopefully more shops, and another adventure to Harrods! Cheers!
