    And it's not me.

    My baby sister just started her Masters degree in Museum Studies. She has a 2 week internship in London this summer (July 11-22). She is so excited to go. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone who lives near London would like a very shy and polite sister of mine as a house guest in order to help her cut expenses?

    Also, does anyone have any suggestions for cheap and safe accomodations?

    I was going to suggest the Winchester House just a short walk from Victoria Station and quite near Buckingham Palace, however it is booked for those dates. You might try London Net - The Guide to London News and Entertainment One I would DEFINITELY stay away from however, is Barry House.

    She has her undergrad degree in American History. She's worked at the Library of Virginia since graduation. She says the only way to move up and on is to get her Masters. I totally beleive that. A bachelors degree is almost the equivalent of a high school diploma in some fields.

    That's definitely true. But what an exciting masters degree to get. What would she like to move on to?

    She did her undergrad internship at the Smithsonian and loved it.

    She also mentioned once she would love to work in the Disney archives. How cool would that be????
