So we are finally in London. What an amazing 11 months we have had together as a team. As nostalgic as I already find myself feeling, it’s not yet time to reflect on the past, it’s time to embrace the awesomeness of of now! It’s time to put on our rugby faces, because rugby fever is here!
Rugby World Cup 2015!
Often on our journey we have commented on how many of the countries we visited were melting pots of cultures, but London I think takes the cake. Every nationality in the world seems to be represented here, so it’s fiitting that England is the host for the Rugby World Cup 2015.
While exploring this ancient city, we bumped into a local named Roan Jones, who said he would show us around if he got to touch the ball and we gladly accepted his offer. After a 30 minute walk around, we decided to stop for a bite to eat. Now, considering that we have just come out of France, our pallettes are feeling very refined right now. We’ve also just spent 11 months traveling through Africa and in that time we’ve sampled countless weird and wonderful dishes. So we told our guide that he couldn’t just feed us, he needed to surprise us! Let me tell you, Roan did not disappoint! He led us over to a parked caravan selling craft beer and Gourmet hot dogs, and boy did they go down well! The bun was filled with a Geman sausage, some mince and a sprinkling of jalapeños, which brought tears to my eyes (though more from the joy than the heat).
Another great meal. Another great day.
