British Museum

The imposing facade of the British Museum

I love the foyer... exquisite!

Walk like an Egyptian...

Love these ellies!!!

The Rosetta Stone is larger than I thought it would be... a shame re the reflections in the photos... as the detail of the stone is lost.

King Henry VIII's wives...??? hehe

The photo above and below look like a bath and a chest.. they are TOMBS! Amazing... they are tiny! The people back in these ancient Greek times weren't THAT short, were they?

We had a brief brunch at the Gallery Cafe.

Lance ordered a Quiche Lorraine (egg, bacon and onion pie), with chickpea salad, and tomato soup. I nibbled on it. It was lovely! Highly recommended.

Unfortunately our time here at the museum wasn't that long, as I got the shakes and felt so nauseous... so we had to head home early. We will go again soon!
