Greetings from London! We had another beautiful, sunny day here. We met at Russell Square Cafe for some breakfast before heading out to meet our guide. Everyone was looking rested and ready for our second day in London. We took the tube to Monument to meet our guide, Richard. Some of the students even had the energy to climb hundreds of stairs to the top of the Monument before our walk. Richard took us on a fascinating walking tour of “Darkest Victorian London”. For about two hours we we strolled through Victorian streets and learned what life was like for Londoners who lived during this fascinating time period. We ended at Borough Market for some food and drink. We enjoyed all the sites and sounds of the crowded market. Later in the afternoon we split up into groups to visit Kew Gardens, the Tower of London, or some other popular London venues. Tonight there are groups seeing shows in the West End or enjoying dinner out. We are appreciating the perfect weather and our experiences. This is a wonderful class and Dr. Firenze and I want to thank the students for their enthusiasm and their fantastic attitudes. They are doing a wonderful job representing SUNY Broome and we are proud of them! Tomorrow is another busy day and we are excited for our behind-the-scenes tour of the Darwin Center! Cheers from London!
