Trudy and I are 100% exhausted and so ready to come home tomorrow. But, also completely satisfied. We saw St. Paul's this morning/afternoon and then only had about an hour in the British museum before it closed. Another wonderful day. We actually climbed up to the stone gallery of St. Paul and got an amazing panorama of London. We also went to the Whispering Gallery which is just under the dome and is so cool. If you turn and whisper along the wall, it travels all the way around the room and you can hear it with perfect clarity. Trudy walked away to go to the other side. She stopped to look down into the nave, and I quit watching her and looked the other way. After a couple of seconds I heard her say, 'Christina,' and I started turning back saying, 'I thought you were going to the other side. . .' only to find she WAS on the other side. Completely on the other side. Very weird. You would have been very proud of me because I went up and up even though it was somewhat nerve-wracking.
St. Paul's Cathedral
Going up and up and up!
We made it!
What a view.
That's the Globe, Shakespeare's theater, on the other side of the Thames.
How many pictures did Trudy take??
Scones and clotted cream just outside St. Paul's.
I'd been looking forward to this treat the entire trip!
The London park where we saw the fox.
Inside the front doors of the British Museum.
Moses and even Joseph may have seen this very carving.
The Rosetta Stone
Assyria/Babylon (I can't remember exactly which!)
This huge statue was just sitting out in the open. I said to Trudy, "Wow, it's just right here. Maybe Daniel touched this. And now we can just reach out and touch it." As I reverently did just that, a security guard walked by and snapped at me, "Hey, don't touch that!"
Goodbye Foreign Missions Club!
Goodbye Great Britain!
Hello Airplane Kitty! What was the name of the this wonderful kitty-pillow, Trudy?
