Broth, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels

When I studied abroad during my junior year of college I stayed a few weeks after my program ended to travel. I made my way from Paris over to Seville to visit another friend studying abroad and then over to London to catch my flight back to the States.

Up until then I’d jumped between the bare basics of Italian, French and Spanish for nearly 4 months. English was a welcome break for my brain and I wish I could have stayed in London a bit longer, to soak in that city. The time abroad ended, summer began and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels hit the theater in Lawrence. I was still riding that study abroad high and just had to be surrounded by that British accent and feel like I was overseas and not stuck in the middle of the country.
