Greenwich and Football

Today concludes my fourth day in London! Yesterday my Boston University program took a ferryboat ride along the Thames River to Greenwich.

Arriving and Settling in London

Greetings from London! The last two days have been an absolute whirlwind! Going to Jack’s Bar Mitzvah in LA and immediately flying direct to London on Air New Zealand.

Challah Baking

Reaching into my Jewish roots, I recently participated a Challah Baking night. Using a timeless recipe, I was surprised how easy baking bread was. We began by mixing the wet and dry ingredients separately; allotting time to discuss the religious importance of Challah while I secretly watched the yeast rise.
