Day 19: Class Projects, A Floating Market, & Victoria Park

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This morning, we all had time to meet with our groups one last time and practice a bit more before we had to present.  We were the first group to go at 1:00, and it was a relief to finally be done! I think it went well.  Tonight, I also turned in my final essay, so I’m completely done with the course. Wahoo!

Class ended at about 4:00, so we decided to go towards Regents Canal to check out a floating market there – people selling books, food, vintage items, etc. all on their little boathouses. From there, we went to Victoria Park for a while to watch the Olympics on the live screens.  Everyone (not me) ate fish and chips there for dinner, walked around for a bit, and I got an ice cream cone.  They have things called “Cadbury 99 Flakes” here, which is basically just vanilla ice cream with a small chocolate bar, but there’s something about it that makes it better than regular vanilla ice cream.  It was a nice afternoon to be outside, and we got back to school around 9.

Tonight we started working on our presentation for the Fulbright reception on Friday.  Can’t believe there’s only two days left!
