After leaving that area we walked around some and did some sight-seeing. Everything here closes around 5 and 7, so after those hours there isn’t anything to do but eat and walk around the city. Tonight it didn’t rain so it was good to be able to see the lights dance in the sky while the city’s noise filled the air. Sometimes I find myself so wrapped up in working that I forget to look up and look around. I’m in London!!! I’m in London riding the trains like I’ve lived here for 1o years now, helping lost tourists find their way around, and giving advice on which spots to eat in the city.
We’ve come a long way from the students that left Nashville two weeks ago. We’ve faced many challenges but so far we’ve overcome them all. It’s intimidating to be told that your assignment is to go to a city you’ve never been to and find places of particular interest and interview the owners or workers, but we’re doing it. I’m doing it. Yes, many say no but, it feels amazing to hear that yes. I’m proud of myself and proud of the progress I’m making.
