I’ve Always Wanted to See Someone Famous…

06 Aug

Too bad she was dead. And mummified. (Sigh). Oh well, it was still exciting to see Cleopatra and the real Rosetta Stone all in one day. (The photos of the Rosetta Stone didn’t really turn out; all you can really see is a reflection of me taking a photo.)

We decided to scoot down to London for a little get-away. We stayed with my husband’s cousin and his wife and baby in their little flat. We had a great few days. We hit the British Museum…AMAZING. It’s enormous. If you ever get the chance to go, don’t plan on seeing it all in one day; I’m not even sure if that’s possible unless you literally run through it. We spent over 2 hours just seeing the ancient Egypt display, which is spread out over 2 floors.

The circular entrance hall took my breath away- all that white marble…and that ceiling…photos don’t do it justice.

The next day Stiggy went off with hubby to see some of the sights while I went to some shops with cousin’s wife.

Stiggy’s favourite bit of the whole trip? Travelling on the Underground. 🙂
