Arrival in London Friday, July 10

Arrived at Gatwick after a calm and uneventful flight. The Gatwick Express carried me to Victoria Station in less than 30 minutes! After a quick lunch and a short cab ride I landed at Stamford Street Apartments, my home for the next few weeks.

The friendly folks from USM were waiting in the Courtyard to greet the new arrivals. After sign-in introductions were made and room keys were handed out. My flat is on the 6th floor at the end of the hall. The rooms are cozy and comparable to what one would find in an American dorm. With a bath en suite, a fridge in the room .

After time to unpack and nap, my class meets in the Courtyard for a walking tour of the neighborhood and dinner at a local pizza parlor. We visit the huge Waterloo train station (over 26 acres under roof) and learn a bit about our surroundings. We spend the dinner hour getting acquainted with classmates and learning about what London adventures await.
