A great second to last full day here in London! The day began with our very last class, where we had some discussions and watched Chariots of Fire.
We ate lunch with Prof. Uta Balbier, who taught the Fulbright Master’s classes on Fridays. She just wanted to hear about how our time here as been. She was been so wonderful to all of us, and she invited us to friend her on Facebook!
We also stopped and visited the Brazil House, where they already have a countdown to the Rio 2016 Olympics. Better start saving my money for that one!
After class ended, we had to go right to a debriefing meeting with Rebecca Cobby, the coordinator of the Fulbright summer programs. She went through a series of questions to get a sense of how our time in London and at King’s College has been. When she led an orientation session with us the first day we got here, we filled our postcards with 3 things we wanted to accomplish while here. She gave us back these postcards, and we shared what we wrote down. We had all accomplished our goals!
The meeting ended at 5:00, and we headed straight to Wembley Stadium for the Women’s soccer (football) final game! It was USA vs. Japan, and the USA won! It was a great game, and we all had seats close down to the pitch. We stayed and watched the Victory Ceremony. There were over 80,000 people, a record number to attend a women’s Olympic sporting event. The USA won 🙂
