Got up early again as i had to get the shuttle bus to the sculpture park at 2 and it was a 90 min bus journey so wanted to do the miniature museum first. Thought id save 50p on the metro and walk cuz it wasnt that far and got completely lost but found it eventually. Quite steep to get in but blagged student with my diving card. Pretty impressive tho for saying it was aload of dolls houses. Mini east end london, buckingham palace, castles, tudor houses and even a tradition british pub with bottles of spirits that actually contained booze. Then off to the bus station to the sculpture park. left myself 2 hours for a 90 min trip to get the shuttle but it took 2 hours 10 mins so i had to get a taxi. only 4 pounds tho. supposed to be one of the best sculpture parks in the world it was pretty crazy. i wondered where he gets all the money to make these like 20 foot bronze statues from. The latest exhibit was something about war and all round the park there were sculptures of different army and navy men. really weird. shit weather again tho got chatting to a guy who works for taiwan beer company in the cafe and him and his wife brought me a piece of cheesecake and a coffee. he was on a three day tour of the whole island driving like 16 hours a day and stopping at places for only an hour or so. he said if i go back to taiwan down south he can get as much free beer as i want from work because they get a staff allowance. good contact.
