Another Fulbright teacher, Jim Pielow, is living in Scotland with his family. He contacted me about some Chelsea football tickets he won. He would not be able to attend the game, and asked if I wanted them. I said to send them down, and he did.
I took my new friend Christopher to the game in London. He is the husband of Kaye, whom I work with. Same age, same interests as me. He does not use public transportation that much as he loves to drive. I planned our day using trains only. We both joked that an American was showing a Brit how to get around London by train. We had a smashing time and Chelsea won, beating Sunderland. I now have a new favourite British football team. Chelsea!
