ISSDC Day 2 – 27/6

Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something. – Plato

Today, we went shopping all day.


Key highlights included a 2-hour game of Mao, a failed game of Sardines, and the life-changing experience of Victoria’s Secret. We learnt a lot about the incredible sales-tactics in America, including humiliation over a build-a-bear minion, buffing men’s nails, “HELLO” as soon as you enter, and not including tax into ANY prices.

We then went to Walmart – which was a very surreal experience. With items ranging from shotguns (£200), opposite the life-vests, to pet food and ramen. It would have been extremely easy to get lost within the never-ending aisles.

To finish the day off, some people went swimming, and we played card games, ready for a very early 6:30 (am) leave from the hotel in the morning.
