Finally having a chance to sit down is nice. It has been hectic, and the semester is winding down. This will probably be the second to last post while I am here. Last week, we had the opportunity to go see Les Miserables in Leicester Square. The performance was truly amazing. I was unaware that the actors sang the entire play, but it was still great! That was the first play I have been to since I have been here and I am going to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tomorrow.
This weekend, we had the opportunity to visit Interlaken, Switzerland. Better than Scotland for me. It was the most beautiful place I have ever been to in my life and I already do plan on returning at some point. Most people were quite adventurous on this trip and went sky diving, cliff jumping, skiing, or paragliding. I actually decided not to do any of these things and just relax. It was the first time I have seen snow this year as well. I cannot believe myself, but I actually missed it…
On Saturday, I visited Zurich. It is the most expensive city in the entire world and one of the highest standards of living as well. I had to pay the equivalent of $6 for a bottle of water! Talk about ridiculous. The city was absolutely beautiful as well and much different from Interlaken. I had the best hot chocolate in the world, from arguably the best chocolate shop in the world. The Christmas market was very hyped up there, but was disappointing. I checked out the banks, their largest church, and of course spit in the river (I have spit in every single body of water I have seen abroad, just so I have some DNA everywhere I have traveled. Weird, but just my little thing to do).
The final day, I almost decided to go skiing in the Swiss Alps. Since, I have never skied before in my entire life, I thought it would be best not to go. A girl on our trip actually tore her ACL and MCL that day, which was very unfortunate. Leaving was tough, because it was definitely the best weekend trip from the semester.
I had our ethics presentation today about business’ and how they are affected by catastrophe’s. We had quite an interesting discussion and I feel that my group presented very well. Before I return home, I am still going to the play tomorrow, ice skating in Hyde Park, and going to Lead’s Christmas market. 12 more days. Pictures will be up later tonight.
