From Haggis to High Tea

Today was another adventure for HUM 1915 as we embarked on the final leg of our Europe tour. We arrived in London by train in the early afternoon and did not waste a second of the day.

First, we started with a quick tour of the beautiful Regent's Park. After lunch and getting adjusted to our new accommodations we ventured onto the tube to explore the beautiful city of London. We started with a visit to Piccadilly Circus, the "Times Square" of London.

We then continued to walk the beautiful city seeing many sights along our route to Trafalgar Square. Here we saw the National Gallery, the monument commemorating Lord Nelson, who is known for his great leadership in the defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo.

Sadie's favorite moment of the day was "taking the tube for the first time to Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. It was a nice way to end a long day of travel."
