After interviews, paper work, booking flights, Saturday classes and scanning through emails, we finally made it! We landed at London's Heathrow Airport today around 7 am and waited for our driver to pick us up (Thanks to Kevin for tracking him down). When we arrived at the University of Surrey, Mike, Sarah, and Megan greeted us in the court yard with the keys (and all important internet codes) to our new homes. Shortly after we dropped off our luggage, we ventured out on a campus tour, courtesy of Mike and Sarah. The leg work didn't stop there, as we walked to the local Tesco to stock up on groceries. We arrived back to our dorms, dazed, confused, and hungry, finally giving in to our jet lag.
For dinner, we ventured down to High Street and ate at The Three Pigeons, a local pub. We marveled at the cobble stone streets and old world charm of the downtown area. After a delicious dinner and walk back to campus, the sun started setting on our first day in England. Tomorrow will start our first official day of class where we will learn about Google Maps, the Pub culture, and tour Guildford Castle and Museums.
