Week one has started! I just had the first day of my first session class. It’s a media and culture studies class so today was the only day we were in the classroom. Our professor has organized trips to museums, theaters, and libraries across London for the next three weeks. Tomorrow, our first trip is to the Tate Britain Art Exhibition, the Museum of London on Wednesday, and a picnic lunch then to a theatre production of An Octoroon on Thursday.
Aside from class, I spend my time exploring different areas of London with a group of people I met on this trip. I’ve been meeting people from all over the United States, as well as other countries in Europe. Last Saturday, the University of Roehampton organized a London-wide scavenger hunt. Our group had to solve riddles and clues for destinations around London then go to them to take a picture in front of it/with it. It was a lot of fun and we quickly learned how to use the Tube, the buses, and the rails. This weekend I will be touring Windsor and Oxford with a group of students from Roehampton!
