The students arrived yesterday. All day long we met groups of them at the tube station and walked them to their dorms. Then we had a big group dinner in the upstairs room of a favorite pub, where they served up all sorts of traditional British fare: Bangers and Mash, Lamb Shank Shepherds Pie, and Fish and Chips. Here's what I had:
Everything was delicious!
After that we walked them over to the BFI, where we bought mountains of tickets to feature films. By the time we were leaving to head back home, it was pouring rain, and then started hailing! Thank heaven for down parkas, good raincoats, extra umbrellas, and gloves!
