|I thought I would start off with a picture from the end of the day, simply because this photo sums up the joy of the whole day. After the International Cabaret, about twenty of us walked to a nearby ice cream store!|
Dr. Wothers demonstrated how combinations of chemicals can result in loud booms, bright colors, and bursts of heat. He is extraordinarily passionate about chemistry, and I really enjoyed having a front row seat for this lecture!
|The Natural History Museum in all it's glory!|
|Here are three really beautiful historic microscopes. The one on the right looks closest to the compound microscopes that we use at UFV.|
|Here is one of the many dinosaurs found within the NHM. Most were on platforms attached to the ceiling, just like this one.|
|There is a very nice garden just outside of the NHM that offers a stunning view of the building.|
|The glorious Old Chelsea Hall. Wow, what a privilege to sing in a group with students representing five countries to an audience representing 75! Just before we got on stage we were told that there were over 400 people in the audience.|
|We called ourselves The International Beatles!|
Today I learned about methods to combat blindness, and the history behind the names of elements early in history. I saw butterflies from around the globe preserved beautifully and dinosaurs towering above me. And lastly, I had the amazing honor of performing with four students, that before ten days ago were complete strangers!
It's a marvelous thing, this LIYSF. I'm looking forward to another full day of learning tomorrow. Until then,
