Westminster Abbey and British Museum

This morning, Emily and I went to Westminster Abbey. The initial tube ride there was rather nerve racking and tense. As the day progressed, things began to feel normal again. The sense of safety is rather illusory, though. There's not much in the way of security- at least that I can see.

Westminster Abbey was fascinating, of course. We saw the tombs of the Tudors and I snapped a shot of the Wilberforce memorial for Fr. Ron. Afterwards, we met up with Amelia at the British museum and saw all the pottery, statues and mummies that have been featured in every history and humanities book since the 1940s.

The pay internet is running out of coin again...more later.

The pay internet takes coin? Really? How archaic!

Were you just being poetic, or do you really stick a coin in an Internet machine?

What made you decide to go to England? (Maybe if I read more of your postings I'd be able to find that out.)

Anyway, this is James from Gainesville who was originally from Pennsylvania who moved to Tampa and is now staying in New Jersey. Remember me?

Hey heather, it's the Kat. Glad to hear you're enjoying the Brits. If you go early in the morning someday to Hyde park, you might catch the horse gaurd practicing. Remember the Tate, if you like Pre-Raphaelite art. Millais's Death of Ophelia is there. Or..at least my memory places it there.

Anyway, I will be moving to Gainesville this August, so I may see you when you get back.
