The Belmont Bruins mens basketball team arrived safely in England this morning and is adjusting to beautiful weather and 6 time zones worth of jet lag. Flying from Nashville to Detroit had a few more bumps than most of the team experienced prior to this trip with rough weather keeping everyone awake on the first leg of the journey. The long flight from Detroit to London’s Heathrow airport provided a better opportunity for a little rest, a friendly game of cards, a movie to watch, and friendly conversation among team members and curious passengers on the flight.
After a brief team meeting with some instructions from our local host, the team settled into their accommodations and used Saturday afternoon to begin exploring the sites of central London. Here are a few images from the day…with more to come tomorrow:
