I'd like to give a quick shout-out to my mother, who just last week arrived in London, where she'll be living for the next few months. She's teaching two classes to students from San Antonio's St. Mary's University, who are participating in a study-abroad program.
Mom seems to be settling in quite well and has already accumulated a wealth of local knowledge to pass on to me in preparation for my trip to visit her next week. In addition, she's keeping a well-updated blog about her experiences, Bridges to London.
I've been to London before but didn't get to take in much more than Heathrow. Needless to say, I'm very excited to see both her and her temporary home!
Here's to you, mum!
