More about London

So I realize that a lot of people don't know what we'll be doing in London so here is the official update. Sean will be working in the Palace at Westminster, which is the building in the picture above. He will be assigned to the SNP (Scottish National Party), who have a constituency (congressional district) right next to the palace! It will be a great experience, especially since they are currently campaigning to seperate themselves from the UK. He will be going to debates, taking notes, campaigning if there is an election, and doing research so they can go and have heated debates. It should all be jolly good. Meanwhile I will be in London doing.... well I'm not quite sure yet but here are the ideas so far. Beacause my dad was born in England I can get what is called the "Right to Abode". It's basically a little card that goes in your passport and says that you can legaly live and work in the UK for as long as you want. So if that works out hopefully I will be working. If I can find a job that is similar to what I am doing now that would be great but if not I'll pretty much settle on doing anything (within reason). On top of that, I have recently been working on doing my family history so I would like to continue doing that and possibly meet some long lost seccond cousins. Thats the plan for now. We'll be sure to update our blog with pictures and exciting and random stories so stay tuned!
