By far the best part of this trip was being able to spend my 22nd birthday in London. This trip was something I will never forget and I wish I could spend a whole semester here and I definitely didn’t want to leave after meeting such an amazing group of people! The morning of my birthday we sat through two presentations; one from Tony Walsh on counterterrorism in the UK and another from Mark Brookes on hostage crisis and negotiation tactics. Following the presentations, we had the rest of the evening to ourselves in which most of us went to Slim Chickens (similar to Chick-Fil-A). The night was planned with another trip to Night and Day bar, in which we had discovered the first night. It was fun to bring our experience full circle and end at a really cool place that we had started at. Overall, not many people get to say that they spent their 22nd birthday in London, and I will forever cherish that.
