The 2018 BIO 293 class left SUNY Broome at 1pm yesterday and arrived at London’s Heathrow airport today around 10:15 am. After waiting for a few hours (!) to clear immigration and customs (holy cow….the lines!!!!) we took the tube to our flats. We dropped off our bags and headed right back to the tube to go to the museum of London. We spent about an hour going through the museum and then the students took turns presenting about various objects they had selected which were linked with the themes of human nature we have been studying. A few students also provided some information about their developing thesis statements. After we spent a few hours at the museum, we headed back to the flats to settle in, visit the grocery store, and have some dinner. A few of us visited the British Museum for an hour or so.
It has been a very long day (or was it days?), so we are are looking forward to some rest. Tomorrow we will meet early for a class discussion and a trip to the British Museum of Natural History and a private, behind the scenes tour of the Darwin Center. Good night from beautiful London!
