Day 10 School's out for.....today, Free Day!
Woot, free day! This was a day where we were on our own to see what we want, and do what we want. I went with Charlotte and Jordan to Buckingham Palace for the changing of the guard. This is a very long yet intriguing ceremony. It is hard to describe beyond that, so this is a case of you just got to check it out for yourself. Anyway, from there, we checked out Camdentown. There we checked out a market area with mostly clothes on sale. From there, I left them to go check out Regent’s Park again. This time I ran into a group of guys in a 6 team league where they play American football. They are the London Hornets, and play other teams around the U.K. On this day they had practice. I talked to their coach, and he said that the player paid 100 pounds for the league and another 20/per game. This shows they truly play this for the love of the game. Despite the fact most of them have never lived in the states. Anyway, after words, I met up with a group of people from the College of London University, most of them the same group I met with to play Ultimate Frisbee. It is interesting when you eat and compete with people sport how much more you can learn about both them and their cultures than just by talking to them.
