Saturday, August 8

My first photo of London

Today is our last full day in London, as we head home on Delta tomorrow morning. Spent the day tying up loose ends, finishing packing, and preparing to head home.

Highlights of a month spent abroad (in no particular order):
  • making wonderful new friends
  • the ease of an Oyster card
  • Konditor and Cook's delicious sweets
  • St. Paul's library (thank you Mr. Wisdom!!!)
  • viewing multiple First Folios
  • sticky toffee pudding in Stratford
  • the British Library (thank you Mr. Mehmet!!)
  • the spiral staircase at St. Paul's
  • the view across the Thames of Big Ben, Parliament, and St. Paul's
  • Holyrood Palace
  • celebrating birthdays with Chai and Nicole
  • watching Kendra become a world-traveler
  • the library at the V and A (WOW!!!)
  • generosity of librarians of their time and knowledge
  • a terrific professor (thank you, Dr. Welsh!!)
  • Harry Potter at the Odeon
  • the macaroons at Paul and Laduree
  • Carnegie Library in Edinburgh
  • Museum of London lecture and tour
  • and much, much more

What a great class this has been! Thanks to all of my London LIS buddies for a fun and memorable month!
