Footnotes from the British Underground

This blog began as venue for my stories as I traveled in Africa. 18 months later, I return to it as I travel to study as a Marshall Scholar in the United Kingdom. My hope is that this blog can be a conduit for you - my family, friends and secret/strange admirers - to track my movements, see a photo or two and get a glimpse of my days in the UK. Apologies once again to Dostoevsky for the blog's name...

After graduating from Notre Dame, I'm off to England for graduate study. I'll be studying for a M.A. in International Politics and Security Studies. When not studying, I'm continuing to coordinate Uganda-CAN's efforts to end the 20-year war in northern Uganda!

Sir Horatio Nelson Lives!

Did you know that Saturday was the 201st anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar?


I found that out on Saturday when these 3 British gentlemen of the Horatio Nelson Society laid wreaths in front of this statue and vowed their lives for his cause. Brits certainly have a sense of history! This is actually the oldest statue of Nelson in all of England; located in the heart of Birmingham.
