Good morning!

It’s officially been 10 days in London! It is flying by so fast with work and going to all the sights. As for the internship they have assigned me with a lot of different types of research on several different topics. My favorite assignment has to be going to cultural destinations and reporting on the eye of the customer. So far, I visited some of the competitors of Sodexo which are located in the British museum and the Somerset house as well as stopping in on some of the work Sodexo takes part in like the Bateaux at London.  This is where they took Chelsie and I on the dinner cruise for afternoon tea. We also visited the Chelsea Flower Show next to Hampton Court Palace.

Aside from work, we have been traveling all over London. Just this past weekend, we took a ride on the London eye, visited the Wax Museum, and a very long market on Portobello Road. When we first arrived it was definitely a shocking change from the everyday life I was used to.  I’d like to say that I have perfected the routes on the tube, but I find a new one every day to get to work easier! I don’t favor public transportation, but I have recently learned that London is trying to get rid of cars all together. There is a charge to even enter the city and drive throughout London. I believe it is 10lbs. Another change (which is for the better) is that Chelsie and I have been walking anywhere from 5 to 9 miles a day. This trip is one of a life time. Attached are some photos of our adventures.

Just wanted to update you on our first week! We have learned and done so much already. Work has been fun - it’s different every day! We get to visit popular venues that Sodexo or our competitors work with along with research and small projects in the office. It took a few days to adjust to the time difference and we are navigating the tube rather well now! I can’t believe we are beginning our second week already! Attached you should find a few pictures of us around London!
