Disembarked MV Discovery and transferred by bus to London. It’s a 2 hour trip so it’s after lunch before I check into the hotel just near Marble Arch. No time to pause although my mind is in “it’s over mode”. That’s not going to slow me; I’m off to see London:
British Museum – WOW, this museum is amazing. Many of the artefacts from Athens (called the Parthenon Sculptures) are here so it has helped link me to the Acropolis experience. There were artefacts from all over the world. It would be easy to spend a week just in this one museum.
Oxford Street – so many 1000s of people all shopping
Dinner in the only British pub in Oxford Street – the staff don’t speak that much English. Funny, but few people in this area of London seem to speak English – not what I expected.
Hyde Park, Marble Arch and Speakers’ Corner – you wouldn’t believe this is England – more like the Middle East or Africa when you look at the people.
