Eyeing London and The British Museum

Today I went on a ride on the London Eye and got a fabulous view of the city. The conditions weren’t perfect, but they were pretty darn good! I could see all of the city, at least, and a bit into the countryside – but then it got a bit hazy. After that, I made my way to the British Museum…
Above the entrance to the British Museum I have to say, I entered this building with a sense of awe – more so than any other place I’ve been in my travels around town. That sense of awe did not diminish in the slightest as I wandered around, seeing the Rosetta stone, all manner of ancient statues, jars, jewelry and such and entire temples relocated into the museum itself. Nereid Monument (The Nereid Monument, taken from Turkey and set back up in a side gallery in the museum – how is that for awe inspiring?)
I saw lots of mummies – from fancy Egyptian ones to accidental English ones (Lindow Man). All in all, it was a fabulous way to spend an afternoon!
