Lauren + Adam’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 12 May 2007

Location: London, UK

MapA bit of a randon day today. We started off by visiting Madame Tussauds, one of the most visitied London attractions. It is very expensive, but we had a buy one get one free ticket so that was probably the only reason why we were going. We actually went last time we were here, but they do have different faces to see and some parts have changed. We enjoyed having our photos taken with many famous faces although for some reason they just wouldn't talk back!! Adam enjoyed the one ride but wanted it to go for longer - doesn't he always!! We left Madame Tussaud's and headed across to the Sherlock Holme's museum. Unfortunatley it was pouring with rain so we didn't get any photos. After that he went to the British Museum for a couple of hours, which you think would be plenty of time but we didn't even see one floor. This place is huge and we got to see my favourites - the Egyptian exhibit and we also hunted out the pieces that are kept here from the Acropolis in Greece. This is a bit of a touchy point between the British and the Greeks. The Greeks think that the British shouldn't have the relics they should and the Brits think they can look after them better! It was great to see them having just visited Greece. We also go to the Rosetta Stone which is on show at the moment - I love to see things that I learnt about at school!! Well it was quite a busy day but we are really trying to see as much as we can before heading to Hong Kong.
