Nasty, Brutish, and Short
Friday, December 16.
We returned from Cambridge and had a few hours to ourselves before congregating at the Duke of York Bar in the Over-Seas House. Everyone looked very put-together.
It seemed appropriate to end the trip similar to how we started it; the two formal dinners acted as bookends to an eventful ten-day journey.
The food was impeccable, as was the company. It was a time to reminisce about our favorite aspects of the trip, what we’ve gained, and how we will use our new knowledge in the future upon our arrival home. The evening was full of jokes, toasts, and traditional Christmas crackers. Professor Grundy concluded the dinner with a thoughtful speech that tied the whole course together.
I think that we students could have planned a trip to England, but we never could have been granted entry into some of the places we were allowed to go. We are all very fortunate to have Professor Terry Grundy provide these unique opportunities for us.
We could not have asked for a better way to end the trip.
