London: The Ultimate Drawn-Out Adventure (Part 5)

The day after the market we went to the British Museum.

There’s not much I can say about this; it’s a museum. It’s pretty good, as museums go–pretty much on par with a Smithsonian (for all you DC people). And it has the Rosetta Stone, which is really what I wanted to see anyway.

We also saw some other cool exhibits, like this Easter Island statue,

And some Egyptian mummies!

However, out of everything, this was by far the best room. It was like stepping into a time capsule. The walls were lined in bookshelves and mini-exhibits, and by the exit was a replica of the Rosetta Stone. I may have hugged it. (Ok, I definitely hugged it.)

After the British Museum we took a wee trek around the city and found these cool places: (don’t ask me what or where they are.I have no idea.)

Finally, we ended up in Trafalgar Square, of the famous fountain and big blue chicken.

In an odd turn of events, all of the statues in the fountain, mer-children included, are spitting up water. I’m honestly not sure how I feel about this.

The blue chicken (which is actually called Hahn/Cock, and was created by Katharina Fritsch) is very impressive and totally random and looks very good in front of the giant blue Canada sign which has absolutely nothing to do with it but matches nicely.
