Last Day in London

Our last full day in London began with with a trip to Down House, the home of Charles Darwin,
in the lovely village of Downe. We took the tube, the train, and the bus and finally arrived. Dr. Firenze read to us from Darwin’s autobiography. Below are some pictures from our trip.

After we returned from Downe, we went to “The Plough”, a traditional British pub in our Bloomsbury neighborhood. We enjoyed a dinner party together to celebrate our last night in London.

It was a very nice time together!
As our time in London draws to a close, Dr. Saraceno and Dr. Firenze wanted to leave the students with one final demonstration. As much as they try to focus on the academic nature of the course, it is often the “fun” parts of London that the students remember. To celebrate this spirit, they decided to commemorate the one thing that the students will remember from our visit: that Johnny Depp regularly visits the hospital in our Bloomsbury neighborhood.

And tomorrow we sail (fly) for home!

Cheers from London!

  1. For some reason, after seeing the last two pictures, Keith Richards is looking pretty good.
