It was interesting meeting a Member of Congress at Heathrow airport. He was gracious enough to not simply take a picture, but he spoke with us for about 10 minutes. What was interesting was seeing him get through a few quick questions “Where are you from?”, “What are you studying?”, and then roll right into his modified “stump speech”. Clearly he’d been through this before. Very nice man, but very clearly a politician (I’m still trying to figure out what the hell he was talking about).
On a side note, he flew coach, and I covertly read the name on his discarded ticket stub to confirm his identity.
Day 1 in Europe? Epic.
