Three Days For London? Hmmm . . .
Although we were all suffering from jet lag and a bit of culture
shock when we arrived on the 25th, we still managed to trudge
around and viewed the park where Virgina Woolf was married, examined
ancient Chinese pottery, and lunched in a small pub. This, however,
was only the beginning.
the next few days we tried our best to overcome our jet lag and
managed to see the Cabinet War Rooms, Buckingham Palace, Westminster
Abby, The National Gallery, and The British Museum. I might also
add that both The National Gallery and The British Museum are completely
which is amazing since you get too see
sections of the Parthenon, the Rosetta Stone, and works by Van Gogh
and Raphael. The London Library also houses a Gutenberg Bible and
some of Di Vinci's original notebooks.
A considerable amount of free time was
also allotted to us so that we could learn the underground “tube” system which allows one to get to any place in London in roughly 20 minutes. I was surprised to see so many people performing in the streets and in the tube system for money. Most of these performers were artists, singers, and musicians and were actually quite talented.
