On one of the tours I took of the many fabulous buildings London has to offer, I heard a tour guide quote Samuel Johnson. "Why, Sir, you find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford." After two weeks here, I don't know if I have ever heard truer words.
London has offered me so much. I learned great things through my research for my class, I learned things about myself (like the fact I can fearlessly ride the subway alone without getting hopelessly lost), and I learned about the great history of this beautiful city.
I've finished my research project, and I'm preparing for my last day here. I've seen everything I wanted to see most, but in London, there is always something else to see and do. I will never forget this experience. I don't want to waste any of my final hours here, so instead of a lengthy summary of my research, I will leave you with a link to my final paper.
In May of 2013, I had the opportunity to participate in a research trip to London. I conducted research comparing how nonprofits use social media for public relations in the U.K. versus in the U.S. The entries in the blog contain my findings.
