It’s finally come time for my final blog post from my long journey throughout the UK. It’s hard to put into words what I’ve learned form this experience, but it’s definitely something I’ll never forget.
There is something about being submerged into another culture that makes you pay attention to the little things you wouldn’t pay attention to at home. Like the fact that men and women dress like they walked off the runway in London, instead of the Michigan State uniform of leggings and a sweatshirt. But you also learn so much more than that, like how much I value my personal space (rush hour on the tube aint my thing.) Also, how much different not only the politics are in the UK, but even the way TV is ran compared to the US. For the US and the UK being only one letter away from each other, we have less in common than you’d think.
I was happy that my mom was here to join me on my last official day of the trip. After class we made the very wise decision to have lunch at the Borough Market, and walk along the river with some lemonade. Then I met up with my mom to get one last stroll around regents park in before our departure.
