London and Independence – Middle for Worldwide Packages


Pleased belated Independence Day! I’m writing just a little bit later this week in order that I might let you know about my 4th of July in London. I hate to interrupt it to you guys, however it was actually boring. There was no celebrations, no fireworks and to my disappointment, no sparklers. A few different college students and I went out to dinner to “rejoice” however that was it.

On the subject of independence, as most of you recognize, as of the twenty third of June the UK has left the European Union. There are nonviolent protests within the streets with individuals who really feel that leaving the EU was the flawed determination. There are additionally indicators in peoples home windows saying to vote to remain. The go away vote gained 52%-48% so the vote was very shut. Britain has two years to barter buying and selling and boarder insurance policies and such. Issues are unsure right here. The Prime Minister has chosen to step down by October, regardless that he was the one to name the vote. Sadly it’s exhausting to provide you extra data on what they’re doing as a result of the negotiations gained’t be completed for an additional 2 years.

On a little bit of a brighter notice I did have my London Move this previous weekend and was capable of see the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Westminster Abbey, and I even received to go ice-skating with some buddies. The Crown Jewels, in addition to the entire outdated armor are all amazingly detailed in each side. It’s superb to see so many items of historical past multi functional place. Tower Bridge was enjoyable, and elements of the bridge have glass flooring so you may see the Thames beneath you. Ice-skating was enjoyable, and it was the primary time skating for a few the individuals who I went with. Westminster Abbey by far was my favourite expertise of the weekend. The abbey was lovely and all the pieces was so detailed. Simply being in there was humbling. Not simply due to how massive and grand all the pieces is, but in addition due to the truth that you’re within the presence of kings and queens and poets. All of those individuals who have executed a lot for historical past and formed the world at present.

Anyway that’s all for this week. I’m happening some actually cool discipline journeys this week and I can’t wait to let you know guys all about it.
