Just recently, I've traded driving on the right side of the road to the left; a quiet New Hampshire town for a bustling global city; and American accents for British ones. That's right, I am currently in the United Kingdom!
The first week has been a very pleasant experience. I am living in a building full of Dartmouth students, including people from my own fraternity, so I hit the ground running with an already developed community. Throughout the days, I have been exploring various parts of London, using the Tube for most of my transportation (it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be to get the hang of it!) And being in a large city, there is a ton for me to do. Right after class on a Friday, I decided on a whim to travel to Westminster Abbey to see the famous church. Little did I know there was a service that was about to start soon, so I was able to experience an Anglican prayer service at a historic church!
