Lunch at the Cheshire Cheese

            Staying on Fleet Street for lunch, our class hopped across the street to the Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese pub. The pub has been around since 1667 -- just after the great fire of London -- and was patronized by the likes of Charles Dickens and Samuel Johnson, as well as countless members of the printing and journalism trade. Spending time in the pub helped our group become one with the history as well as enjoy a nice meal. The food choices varied, but all of the choices were at the top of each student’s liking. Dishes ranged from the traditional fish and chips with some brown sauce to Bangers and Mash and also Cottage Pie. The break in the middle of our day helped all of us to relax some before our next visit in the afternoon.
