What day is it?
So I live in London. As of now I still feel more like a tourist than a resident, and I’m kind of okay with never becoming just one or the other. Today was a great start at mixing the two…we started this morning a little bit less jetlagged but I was (am) still pretty out of it. I couldn’t get out of my bunk bed until 20 minutes until our meeting time. We got on a tour bus and headed off for a morning of sightseeing. It’s now 12:35am (6:35pm Missouri time) and looking back I cannot believe how much ground we’ve covered today. I want to add pictures—and I will as soon as I can figure it out—to chronicle everything just because there’s no way I can remember it all. The cutest British woman name Diana was our tour guide and she was just like Mary Poppins! I was about to say that she had an umbrella and everything but I realized how silly that sounds…only the dense Americans like me don’t have an umbrella handy at all times! Maybe I should have brought the ‘authentic’ Mary Poppins umbrella that my mom and I bought on Broadway over spring break…don’t laugh, we were on some kind of Broadway high.

Hey, Em! Just checking up on you. Glad you got there safely. JP was asking about you. I'll relay your blog to him. It's Thursday morning and I will be heading to Kimberling City fairly soon for the weekend. Looking forward to reading more blogs. LOVE Brid

Sounds exactly like how the Journalism study aboard in Australia was! They wouldn't let us sleep and we had to do the whirlwind tour right when we got there after a seriously long flight. It was nucking futs! And good luck with the jet lag; don't let the dreary london rain catch you a cold. That can really put a damper on one's fun level. Take care, I'm looking forward to your continuing narrative here. haha. ---- Austin
