Day 7: London

Day 7 was very slow paced, especially after day 6. We slept in and caught up on our journaling while it rained outside. I also snacked on leftovers; one of the perks of having a full apartment while on vacation. Most of the rainy day was spent indoors roaming through the exhibits in the British Museum. And wrapped up our last evening in London with a second show, Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap

Oh, here's my disclaimer: please excuse the photo quality you are about to lay your eyes on. They were all taken on my phone (and I'm far too lazy to edit and/or crop them). I needed a break from carrying my camera gear all week. Who needs a gym when you lift a heavy bag over your head constantly throughout the day.

Artists at work. They were in every corner of the museum.
Amenhotep III
Rosetta Stone. It was underwhelming, just like when I saw the Mona Lisa.
Lunch at the museum cafe - quinoa salad with pomegranate seeds and pistachios.
Ah, alcohol sold openly. That 4.5 is the alcohol content.
Mummy pets.
Full Samurai amour.
Hoa Hakananai'a Easter Island statue.
Lion of Knidos.
Ceiling of the British Museum (cropped using Instagram).
Killing time at Starbucks. I tried multiple times to get a photo of a double decker in the background.
The pumpkin loaf did not taste the same as the ones in the US. Also, Costa Coffee is way better.
The Mousetrap at St. Martin's Theatre. Awesome production!
Chinese comfort food for dinner at Cafe de Hong Kong. Took me back to my childhood.
