Looking Forward to More Trips

My travels are about to shift into high gear. Since I've arrived in London, I've stayed in Britain. But, this weekend I'll be heading to the continent for a few days in Paris! I'm incredibly excited - I'm actually leaving tomorrow night.

And a week after that is our "reading week" which is one week without any classes, intended for students to catch up with their studies. I intend to catch up with my friend Alex in Copenhagen. Hopefully I'll be able to make a side trip to Sweden while I'm there! That will take five days, and after a day in London, I'll be off on a jaunt to Ireland for the second half of my reading week. I'll be visiting Cork (to see some EAP-mates) then headed to Dublin. It's going to be so much fun!

Life in London has been good. Last week, England was in the Rugby World Cup final. Unfortunately, they lost, but nevertheless it was fun to cram in with a few dozen other people outside a pub to catch glimpses of the final game on the TV. (There was supposed to be a big projection in Trafalgar Square, but there was no sign of that.) I found it particularly hilarious/interesting that England's team song is "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot."
