It seems as if we are getting down to the wire. We have two weeks of work left and still so much to do. I cannot believe how fast the time is going. This week our main objective was to complete our two ideas and start moving forward. There were minor setbacks daily that made us continually make changes and push back more work. Every day began to become longer and longer work days. We started coming in earlier and staying later. Welcome to the real world. Our group gets along so well though and we have so much fun together that it is all worth it. Tuesday meant Bachelorette time. Emily, Jenna and I sat around the little computer screen and watched the weeks Bachelorette. This always provides us with entertainment and laughs. Some of ... read more

A short work week - only 3 days! Tuesday we got to sleep in an extra hour and start from our apartment. We headed to the advertising agency to learn all about the advertising strategies and learn about some of the actual projects they have done for Hasbro. We spent the morning there and then had a short break before heading back to Regent’s for work in the afternoon. We worked until 5ish and then took a break. After work we just took it easy and hung out. My roommate bought the first two episodes of the Bachelorette and so we spent our night watching those. There was a group of us sitting around her computer on a kitchen chair to catch all the action. Wednesday and Thursday were just two more days of work that ... read more

WELCOME TO LONDON. And my next adventure begins and I cannot wait to start working, traveling and experiencing London. I have my bags packed, repacked and ready to go. I boarded the plane in Dallas and 9.5 hours later I touched down in “London Town”. After getting my way through border control, customs and bag reclaim I exited the airport and began my trek through the city to Regent’s College. I was with my friends, Jenna and Tyler, and we caught the Express train to Paddington station. From there we made our way via taxi to Regent’s College. Who would have thought that all three of us and our luggage would fit in one small London taxi? Well it was more like how many clowns can we fit in the small car, but we made it! ... read more

London Day 4 We awoke to a brisk, misty morning. The threat of shopping hung thick in the air - the scent was strong... With the weather not conducive to visiting BOB's and the fact we had ticked most off the list, Camden Town and markets seemed a logical choice. The tube, again, beckoned to be ridden and the predictable wait of 1 minute seemed never ending. With a rush of air and 'mind the gap' we were off, speeding into what was surely going to be a purchasing paradise. Upon arrival, the crowds were a throbbing mass, converging as one onto the escalators, surely propelling them, and us into shopping utopia...not to be! Well, it was OK but nothing seen could have been described as unique. A large Queen Vic Market, spread out over ... read more

Tog til Camden Market idag. Det er sådan et fedt sted. Købte en halskæde med et lille lommeur som vedhæng og fik pruttet £3 af prisen, hvilket jeg er ret stolt af:) Tog et par billeder men lyset er ikke så godt. Camden er sådan et sted man ikke rigtigt kan tage ordentlige billeder af, det er et kæmpe stort marked proppet med turister men også med en masse alternative mennesker der shopper tøj her. Fik også købt mig et par Banksy plakater til min væg yay... read more

Hampstead Heath & Wedding Party Today, Saturday we let Leanne and Brad be our guides to North London. So we walked from home to Hampstead Heath (40 minutes) in a slight drizzle. Lunch from the local Saturday morning stands at the Heath was yummie Sausage Burgers and Coke. We got a good view of London to the south from Parliament Hill and tried to spy Greenwich with Brad's binoculars and iPhone ( for directions). Leanne went off for a hair appointment and Brad lead through the network of park trails, trees all in fall colours. That evening we participated in the Leanne and Brad wedding celebration - London version. We taxied with the happy couple, dressed in wedding day White Dress and Suit to Shepherd's Bush and spend the night visiting with their many and some ... read more

Walking the Thames - South Side What a beautiful day for a walk along the Thames - sunny, warm and lots of people to watch. Kayla was snapping pictures at every turn in the river. This route from Westminister Bridge to Tower Bridge has a wide and very popular river side walkway, much more accessible than the narrow and sometime non existent walkway on North side. As we were on the south side we got great sun-filled views across the river to "The City" the original town of London with St Paul's Cathedral and the Tower mixed in with dramatic new architecture. On the Southwark side most of the buildings are new and equally dramatic design. East towards Tower Bridge is the new City Hall on a spacious and shiny walkway called the Queens Walk.

A Football Game, Touring Whitehall & Westminster Nothing like walking around to cure jet lag, although there was only one hour's difference between Livingstone Zambia and London, so there wasn't as much jet lag as there was just plain lack of sleep from the plane flight. In any case, we decided that a London walkabout was the thing to do. We were spending our last week away from home with our newly-married daughter and son-in-law. What a nice flat they have, and with a convenient extra bedroom, which we very much appreciated, given that accommodation in London is exorbitantly expensive. It was Richard's wish to attend a football game (soccer in North America), so lucky us, the Queens Park Rangers were playing Reading in Shepherd's Bush. Leanne & Brad had reserved tickets. It was an experience ... read more

Rocks, Dinosaurs and Albert Today Richard took Kayla to the Natural History Museum in Kensington so she could see the rock room for herself. She patiently wandered through the 300 cases of rock samples without a single yawn. Richard could have stayed there all day but there were still dinosaurs to see. Then a short walk over to Hyde Park, a picture of the Albert Memorial, glorious fall colours along the Serpentine and across Green Park to Marble Arch. We reached Camden Town tube stop in time to buy supper fixings at the very international and busy Sainsbury’s. Then home for supper and Africa and wedding picture viewing with Leanne and Brad. ... read more
