Academics and London Alive!

This morning we had a class meeting to go over the itinerary. Best of all, I started this blog!

Then I took part in London Alive! during the afternoon, which are a series of professor-led trips around London for the entire group. I joined the group that took a breath-taking boat ride down the Thames to Greenwich. We didn't have time to stay long in Greenwich, however, because we had to get back (by train and tube) for our King's College welcoming dinner. (Fortunately, our class will be going to Greenwich again for an entire day.)

The welcoming dinner took place in the overwhelmingly beautiful King's College Chapel at the Strand. Several colleagues noted that the Rev. Ditchfield reminds them of Father Tim in Jan Karon's Mitford series! (The photo above shows colleague Mike Key and me in our dorm courtyard before the welcoming dinner.)
