Breezing through the British Museum

sunny

We had a half-day free before our flight so we tubed to the British Museum. For anyone planning to go, I highly recommend allocating more than 2.5 hours to spend there. There’s so much to see! It was barely the tip of the iceberg, if even that much, but some of the highlights were the Rosetta Stone (!!!)

and an exhibit about the kingdom of Urartu, an area which was eventually ruled by the Armenians. There was an ancient coin on display, one of three which archaeologists found at the ancient Armenian site of Garni. The museum is big and beautiful and deserves devotion of more than a couple of hours.

And for another example of London’s architectural excellence, this is opposite the museum in Holborn.

We LOVED London. I wish I could spend some more time wandering the streets and soaking in the sights but, alas, it will have to wait for another time. I'd love to return soon.
