Snippets From London, The Photos, part 1

Today I decided to forgo throwing photos into my posts, but rather giving my accompanying photos their own post.

Trolleys, hello American in London.

British Museum, having some fun out front.

Incredible architecture inside as well.

THE Rosetta Stone. Simply, wow. 196 BC.

Beautiful sculpture, history and splendor.

A snapshot of the weather, it's more of a feeling really.

One of the unexpected gems. Beautiful Leica cameras, FREE Wifi, good sandwiches, and hot tea. A place to regroup before taking in more of the city.

  2. Lovely photos! About that first picture - 'children should not ride on trolleys' - wish I had seen that when I was in FLA a few weeks ago. I was dumb enough to put my 4 year old on top of 2 suitcases and then he flew off and landed on a suitcase. He got hurt, a bruise under his ribs, but he was okay - thankfully. It was very dangerous of me, but I didn't think I'd hit a bump and he'd go flying off... yikes!
    Looks like you're having so much fun!!

  5. Great pictures from the British Museum - that Greek sculpture you got a snap of is part of the famous Elgin Marbles - behind which there is a fascinating story and diplomatic incident rumbling in the background (the Greeks want them back!) Well worth looking up on Wikipedia or whatever if you have the time.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay in our (cold!) capital city!

  8. Just got caught up on your trip in these last two posts. Sounds like it was a great time.

    The last time I was in London, it was Valentines Day weekend. Similar time of year - and the weather went from mild to freezing in a day. But DC winters are a lot like that - so it wasn't too bad for us.

    Hope you'll be posting more stories and pictures - I love hearing about travels. Living vicariously? Probably...
