It’s been 48 days since I’ve arrived in the UK, and finally my parents came to visit me on Tuesday. When I first saw them, I may or may not have cried like a little girl. Ever since, I have been showing them around Leicester and making sure they don’t get run over by city traffic.
I showed them the parks…
They brought me four boxes of Luna bars, one box of Stove Top Stuffing, one box of graham crackers, one container of Old Bay, hot chocolate, Thanksgiving napkins and decorations, four boxes of Kraft Mac & Cheese, and one box of Twinkies.
I am excited to share some of these “American foods” with my new friends. I don’t think I’ve ever even tried a Twinkie, but you have to admit, it definitely screams cliche, processed, sugary American convenience food.
We got some tasty Wagamama’s. I’ve never been before, but it was so delicious. I got Chicken Ramen, which is basically noodles, broth, spinach, onions, and chicken. The sodium was probably off the charts, but otherwise it was a nice healthy, filling meal.
My dad liked how big the bowls were.
It’s so exciting to have my parents here until early next Thursday. I am going to be so sad to see them leave, but I am trying not to dwell on that and just focusing on enjoying the time we have together.
Tomorrow, we will be leaving for London for two days and then Paris until Wednesday (!), so you can expect a recap sometime later next week.
42 days until I am back in the US.
