Then we found the British Museum
The giant statues of the Pharaohs.
This close up picture allows you to see the detailed writing the Egyptians put on all the various burial pieces.
Behind the kids is a "fake door" that was really a wall inside the maze buried inside the pyramids. Funny how the ancient civilization worked so hard to keep people out...and we end up putting things like this in a museum for all to see.
|I think this was the Assyrian part of the museum.|
Much of the Parthenon was cut away and moved here many many years ago. These stones are part of the intricate carvings that surrounded the walls of that ancient building in Greece years ago.
We stayed on the River Thames, about a mile from the Eye. It was a good landmark for us much of the trip to know where we were in relationship to our apartment.
As promised, more of our collection of Big Ben photos. This was taken under the shadow of the Eye.
Sorry for the delay in completing the London journal. We maxed our google storage. I decided to pay the penalty tax for a while and see how it works. It's less than 0.10/day to upgrade. Seems easier than trying to figure how to move these years of photos and stories or to part with them.
