On Friday, the University was hosting some political event and as a group of us from my office went for tea, we noticed that the Shadow Cabinet (like the minority party in the legislature here) was all arriving in the parking lot by IMC. So we all took pictures and I got to hear some opinions of what my co-workers thought of British politics. Tom said these were the people that were mostly responsible for the economic downfall of UK. It was really interesting.

Also on Friday, the evGP team here test drove their cart, which was shipped to Purdue yesterday in a big crate for the competition next month at the Indy 500 track. I think they've got a pretty sweet cart that will give good competition for the folks back home.

Afterwards, we went back to the hotel and watched a bit of the England versus Ireland rugby match, which was intense. England won. Later Saturday night, Sagar and I went out for St. Patrick's Day. Justin and Leslie didn't join us because they had to get up early for their flight home. We started at the London Irish Centre, which was sort of depressing, I think, because Ireland lost the rugby game.

This morning, the weather was SO NICE that I decided to ride my bicycle to campus and I was able to find a new route as well, that avoids a lot of traffic! I also saw the most beautiful Blue Heron, just chilling on a tree branch, enjoying the sun as well.

I hope everyone back home is doing well! :)
