Week 6: The One where I went to a Food Market 

I am the type of person who would want to try out coffee shops and food places at every new place I visit. This is something I absolutely love doing and it’s one of those things which brings me joy. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that I absolutely had to try out the Borough ...

Week 5: The One Where I Spoke to Louise 

With only 2 weeks remaining of the course, all my professors are wrapping up their classes. That basically means I have been dealing with a lot of tests and assignments- but amidst all of those, this week too, had its peak moments: For my Principles of Management class, we went for paint balling as our ...

Week 4: The One Where I Felt a Little Under the Weather

Ode to my study abroad friends

My last week in London

This last week in London has gone by very quickly. We had some final projects and exams to finish up, our return COVID tests to schedule, packing up our rooms. Between the not so fun responsibilities, we managed to squeeze in some nice things before heading home. We celebrated Cate’s 21st birthday, which was obviously ...

London Recs

There was a lot of trial and error finding spots we liked and didn’t like. So here are some of my favorite restaurants/bars/areas, and one cocktail recommendation:  Recommendations near Metrogate and Foundation House:  Paul is a French café down the street from Foundation House. I would go there every morning before class. The beetroot sandwich ...

Southern Indian cuisine in Southall

For my Food, Culture and Society Class this week our professor took us to Southall, a predominantly South Asian neighborhood. Monisha Bharadwaj, a well known cook and author, is an expert in Indian cuisine, and she took us on a walking tour of the area.  Central London has countless Indian restaurants, which are mostly white-washed ...
