With all of this talk of the Brexit, we are picking an interesting time to begin our year abroad. We’ll be in London for five days and then onto Scotland for another ten days. We will get to experience firsthand a kingdom not-so-united. I am really looking forward to conversations with people in both countries, understanding how this macro-shift in a political and economic policy affects the every day person just doing their thing. For us, it gives another opportunity to get out of our US-centric brain and live a moment of history for a few other countries. For the kids, they will continue to try to wrap their head around the fact that a United Kingdom is not a permanent state.
