Day 1

Today we went to George & Dragon for lunch! It was interesting to see the traffic with the cars driving on the left side of the road. The Shepard’s pie from George & Dragon was delicious, it reminded me a lot of a chicken pot pie but heavier. I loved listening to the British accents, and I hope to learn how to speak with a British accent better by the end of this stay. The Downe house was so neat to explore, it was crazy to imagine Darwin sitting in the room I walked in writing the Origin of Species! Walking around his garden reminded me a lot of the scenes portrayed in the movie we watched, and I just imagined him sitting by the tree watching his children play in the yard. The residential area was such a quaint area, and I adored the style of houses! Emily and I went to Chinatown for dinner, which was really similar to the other Chinatowns I’ve been to around the US!
