Harry Potter Warner Bros Studio Tour!

I thought I was going to continue writing about my previous summer backpacking trip, but I decided to write more about my time in London (since it's still fresh in my mind). This trip took place a few months ago, when congee gave me a free ticket to visit the Warner Bros studio because his friend couldn't make it. The Warner Bros studio is located northwest of London 15 minutes bus ride away from Watford Junction. This is where the magical Harry Potter Series was filmed, with original gimmicks and costumes used in the real film.  There are also a bunch of really nice models of architecture from the movie! Anyways I'll try to keep the picture count low in this blog, because my last post had way too many photos which made viewing the blog really slow!

Penndesign London AA visiting program

Since schools in London have shorter semesters, the UPenn London AA starts a bit later than the normal 700 studios in Penn. (Approximately 10/1, but our own studios with Homa starts 9/17 with a short intro to the AA on 9/15). Living is also not accommodated by the school, so we had to look for short term leases on our own. ( Housing costs range from 150 pounds[275 USD] a week to 400 pounds[600 USD] a week, depending on location and size). In general most of us took 2 other electives along with our required studio course. Most of us also traveled a lot during the weekends because of the close proximity to amazing countries!
