Deep in the heart of the 6th floor of One Dallas Center, nestled in the bustle of downtown Dallas, there lived a young groundbreaker. This young groundbreaker grew up hearing stories of a distant land, far beyond the limits of the fabled Woodall Rodgers thicket and the Deep Ellum valley. From time to time, the young groundbreaker would travel through the world wide web to the encampment of the wise Wikipedia Wizard were he would hear stories of a land across the sea filled with dragons, emperors, and cities shining bright with gold, red, and blue LEDs. The Wikipedia Wizard told the young groundbreaker of this new world's rich culture; a land filled with new sights, tastes, smells, and of course a group of amazing groundbreakers who created places to enhance the human experience in this land with an unthinkable style and grace never before seen this side of the great White Rock Lake. The stories of this amazing group of human experience enhancers on the other side of the world gripped the young groundbreaker. He knew he must adventure to this mystical land. The land was China.

It's a new year and a new Xchanger in London. For the first blog, I'm going to try and bypass some of the information that's already been presented to you from previous Xchangers in regards to the HKS London office location and surroundings. Needless to say though, for those of you whom already know me it's been overwhelming - but not in a negative way. For those who don't, I've grown up in a town just outside of Richmond, Virginia and have only spent a few days in a city as large and busy as London. To put it into perspective, I'm use to two-lane roads and sweet tea. London is far from that. The city is constantly alive and you need to be on your toes to follow suit (the center picture above is Picadilly Circus at night and gives you an idea of this).

As we start of a new year, I’d like to thank all the people that helped with the troop care packages this past year. Let us pray that in the near future, we will not have a need to send care packages out. Until that day, we strive to show our support for these brave men and women, who sacrifice so much, that we are still able to have our freedom and way of life.
