Rugby, Rubgy... more Rugby

Shooting games and touring around London

sunny 15 °C

I’ve been staying with Ritu and she makes the most wonderful home cooked meals. One night she made butter chicken… from scratch. It was amazing and delicious. How am I ever going to go back to take out Indian food??

I went to the small town of Rugby and went on a tour around the school there where rugby was invented. Fun fact, rugby, football, soccer and handball all originated from the same game played by a bunch of 17 year olds in a school yard. So if you like any of those sports... really you like rugby :D

Our tour guide used to play rugby in Toronto with the same team I often shoot for!

I’ve toured around the city a bit, it’s been wonderful. In addition to sight seeing with Ritu, Jose and I visited the museum and art gallery.

I also got to have high tea with an old friend which was amazing because A) we got to catch up B) my tea came with hendricks gin. That’s what I call a win win.

Tomorrow is another World Cup Rugby match so today I went to the University of Birmingham to shoot a practice game. Rugby games in England seem to have cheerleaders and a lot of Taylor Swift. Odd.

At half time people jumped out of plane and landed on the field. It was really random but amazing.
