I got into a surreal moment when I got to see Stonehenge. Just to know that I was in the same place as these ancient monuments is beyond my mind. Something that ive noticed in London is how Princess Diana is not really an iconic figure here. I went to her memorial yesterday and was completely shocked to see how little and meaningless it was. I haven’t really seen anything about her since I’ve been here, which is a little upsetting but im still enjoying this experience.

Mundo

Was at the BBC Headquarters in London. Was very fortunate to meet a photojournalist and a reporter that work for Latin Americas BBC Mundo!!

Sunny and beautiful

Today was lovely, it’s been so dreary I was so excited to see the sun shine on this amazing city. It made everything even more beautiful and made visiting the National Art Gallery even more perfect. Walking out of the museum with the gleam and glow of the sunshine made me smile and enjoy the overflow of crowded people rushing by me. We’ve already done so much yet there are still so many things left to do!

Radio Show

May 30, 2013 Walking the streets of London like a pro!!! Enjoying my time here so far.

May 27, 2013 Very excited about this trip. Today I’ll be in Oklahoma, but tomorrow I’ll be on my way to London. I’ve been planning on this trip all semester, and now it’s finally here. I immediately turn this journey to its main purpose which is to learn about other cultures and actually have a personal experience in another country. I’m anxious and excited and really looking forward to everything that’s coming my way.

Our first full day in London

Yesterday was eventful, from riding the tube for the first time to venturing out to the hop on hop off bus ride, we had a great day and it really wore us out. I was so sleepy I fell asleep standing up a couple times and dozed off while sitting in the comfy warm double decker bus. We ate at a British pub last night and the salmon fish cakes were to die for.We got a lot of much needed rest that night and are ready to go go go today. We will see more of the city and get lost in the hustle and bustle of busy city folk. I want to do everything we possibly can!
