British Studies Program: London Baby!

London Baby (From Friends)

Let's see... the first few days here in London have been crazy, and have gone by so fast! I will try to remember some of the highlights so far.

I arrived at Heathrow on Friday (28 June) morning with the group from Chicago after a few little delays, but they were nothing compared to the nightmares some of the other students encountered.  Not much sleep, but really not a bad flight.  A couple of us took the tube from the airport to Waterloo, and then walked to our dorm to check in.  This was the longest route, but also the cheapest :)  That evening, we met in the courtyard of the dorms to take a walk around are neighborhood. We walked along the south bank of the Thames and ended up getting pizza a little restaurant on the river.  There are 17 girls in the library science program and our professor, Dr. Welsh.  They are all awesome so it has been a lot of fun getting to know everyone.

Our flight path- WE MADE IT!

 The National Theatre is down the block from us.
 Then we walked to Trafalgar Square. This is the National Gallery.

 I love every view from Trafalgar.

Walked past Big Ben on the way home. I decided to take pictures when it wasn't so rainy out.
