You never know who you might see in London!

London is in the top 20 largest cities in the world. This city is so diverse there is always someone new that you can meet. You never know in London, you might just pass shoulder to shoulder with someone famous.

You can always hang out with Will and Kate like you see me doing. Just kidding, they are look-a-likes. There is always a chance to see the Royals, or at least see where they live. A bunch of students from our group visited Buckingham Palace and saw Kate’s wedding dress.

 
Last month our group of students went to the National Theater for a show. On the way to the theater there was a movie premier for "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," me being the big
celebrity guru did not realize who was just steps in front of me: Colin Firth. When I told the other students about the movie premiere they were very disappointed in me for not getting an autograph from the celebrity. I guess if I would have known who that was I would have been in the right place at the right time!

This last weekend there was a NFL party across the street from our housing. Some players from the Bears and Buccaneers were there. Our group from UWSP had the chance to see a couple of them. There were very few fans outside, maybe since they know about our rivalry with the Bears, or probably because American football is not very popular in the UK.

While in London you never know who you’re going to see. You just have to keep your eyes peeled!
