The sights of London and the Kew Gardens

Written by Leon Tsai ’17 and Michael Johnson ’16

After a long night’s rest in the Kingsley Hotel, we were ready to take on the streets of London. Morale was high as we devoured our magnificent breakfast, and any sense of weariness from the previous day immediately disappeared. Jet lag was no match for us now. Our adventures through London took us to many different sites: the Museum of London, the Millennium Bridge, the Tate Modern museum, Buckingham Palace, and Covent Garden. Lunch and dinner were fantastic as well; we had fish-and-chips and Indian food respectively. This was a great opportunity for the group to get a full-on London immersion experience. So far, we have been very satisfied. Everyone in London has been so kind to us, transportation is easy via the Underground, there are so many things to do, and overall, the city is just so beautiful. Every place has its own intricacies and nuances that make it uniquely it’s own. With two sightseeing days completed, we highly look forward to the Kew Gardens visit to come.
