Day 3 was a day to remember. Although it was the most tiring I do have to say, It was the most inspiring and made me think a lot more. We started off at the The Design Museum which held the Exhibit, “California: Designing Freedom”. As soon as I saw the name of the museum hung above me on the wall just outside the entrance, I knew this was going to be filled with everything we’ve been itching to see. The simplicity and lighting from the moment we entered made a bold statement especially in comparison to the different entrances we have seen previously. We entered the exhibit and not even five minutes in all you could hear was each and every one of us excitedly explaining what we just saw in a glass case on the other side and how amazing it truly was. It was something special to see posters that have made an impact in the past, and designs that changed the world. It was everywhere and all I could really think to myself was, the world is truly based on design and we are the future. I could never imagine being the artist behind some of these works…how was this talent even possible?!
After the design museum our stomachs grumbled and we knew it was time for something to eat to fuel us for the rest of the day as it felt our knuckles began to drag on the ground in defeat. Somehow we managed to coordinate for every single one of us to enjoy a lunch together, its kind of as if we like each other or something. After lunch, happy and full, we roamed Kensington to browse the shops and streets.
My excitement grew for that night because we were going to the Broadway show, “Wicked”. I have been lucky enough to have seen this whimsical play before with my senior class in high school on our class trip, and I had absolutely no problem seeing this work of wonder again. Afterwards, like clockwork, stomachs roared yet again and we began to hunt for something to eat. To my surprise London isn’t like I am and stays up till 4 in the morning, no… they shut down for 11 o’clock. This was a blessing in disguise as majority of us decided to cram ourselves into a single hotel room fit for two and order in. We continued our bond over food, design, and a quite loud sense of humor. Yet another day has passed with many miles covered and I am so happy I have the privilege of taking part in a trip like this.
