Day 17: British Museum, Tea & Scones, & Hyde Park

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Today we got out of class pretty early, so we had time to check out the British Museum, where the Rosetta Stone is held.

After going to the Museum, we went to try a true British afternoon tea at a place called Bea’s of Bloomsbury.  One of our professors, Uta, had recommended it.  It was delicious.  I had vanilla black tea with two scones, jam, and cream.  That was so filling it served as our dinner.

Before we went back to school, we decided to go to Hyde Park, where they have big screens showing all the Olympic events.  We walked around for a bit there.  I had been told to go see the Peter Pan statue in Hyde Park, so we began looking for that.  The park is huge, and it took us a long time to find it, but we finally did!

I just completely finished up my final paper.  I am so relieved that it is all done.  I  won’t be looking at it again until I have to turn it in!

Tomorrow, we are spending the day in Manchester.  Time for bed!
