London, 18th-20th November 2006

We went down for a long weekend to visit David and meet up with a few others

A promenade by the Thames

 

Jen's new look

 

It was fairly windy

 

Approaching Tower Bridge on the ferry

A church

 

Expensive goodies at Borough Market

 

Very very expensive goodies at Borough Market

 

The Tate Modern

 

Looking down from the balcony in the Tate. Blue jeans appear to be taking over the world - try counting them next time you're in a crowd

 

This piece was various flags made of sand which then had ants set loose in it to tunnel through and mix it up. Pretty, and a nice idea, but I think the artist might have been expecting a bit more mixing to happen

 

There were slides installed when we were there, but the queues meant it wasn't really worth having a go

 

One way to pass the time

 

Sundown

 

Dali sculpture

 

The London Eye

 

Big Ben

 

We went to see Avenue Q on Saturday evening. Hilarious, and thoroughly recommended for anyone who ever watched Sesame Street when they were younger

 

Sunday at the Natural History Museum

 

A dead lizard

 

A big dead lizard

 

A plastic dead lizard. This one is animated and scares children

 

The museum building is worth seeing in itself

 

We went to see Tim Minchin perform that night. A very skilled pianist and quite a funny comedian

 

In the British Museum on Monday

 

In the Ancient Greece and Rome section

 

A very pretty clock

 

A very pretty hog

 

A very pretty sarcophagus

 

Some very pretty Egyptian Smurfs

 

A kind of pretty mumified corpse

 

And if that lot wasn't pretty enough for you, you could always call one of the numbers posted in this phone box nearby...
