More construction being done while we were in London. The bridge was closed! Luckily the pedestrian pathway was still open. Another bridge walk crossed off the list.
Walking through Southwark in London is a really fun experience. At this point of the day I was getting kind of tired but seeing all this architecture and all the new buildings really woke me up. The best part was looking up and see all these crazy reflections and lines going on. There were a lot of people walking around and eating while we were there. It looks like it’d be a really cool area to work.
Just casually standing in the middle of the road. No big deal.
Fleet street is such a cute little street. It was really cool to see the mix of the old and the new while observing all the people walking by. Is it just me or is everyone in London super fashionable? I loved seeing all the guys in their business suits but also loved all the accessories and purses the women would wear. Where do you go shopping?!
Obviously I had to go to the Natural History Museum in London to compare it to the one in DC. Overall impression, it was pretty cool. I’m not sure if it’s as big as the one in DC but there were a couple of differences that I enjoyed. For example, the main entrance was inspiring. The architecture, staircase, and dinosaur display was so cool. Is it weird that it reminded me of Harry Potter?
I had such a great time visiting London. The weather gods were working in my favor because it was actually sunny while I was there. Cool and comfortable, perfect for spending the day exploring. Luckily, my friend Graham was available to show me around. It was great to ask him all of my ridiculous american stereo typical questions like, “What do you really think of Kate and William?” I’m sure he only rolled his eyes at me 5 times during the time we spent together.
