The Tower of London was awesome. The Crown Jewels were in there in addition to everything I documented, but no photography was allowed. Sorry. They were very shiny, I assure you, and highly recommended.

The Film Museum was disappointing. For one thing, nothing was clearly labeled- there were usually no hints as to whether something was an original prop or a reproduction, and sometimes it wouldn't even tell you what movie it was from, or would lack a sign entirely. For all I know, they bought a limited edition life size Alien from The Sharper Image and started a museum around it. Also, most of the props were from new movies rather than classics... and not even good movies, either. Still, it was kind of fun, and the only way I had of seeing Daleks during my trip to London. There used to be a Dr. Who museum in Blackpool, but it closed a few years ago. :(

Other than that, we wandered around town looking for a shirt I wanted but never found it, Glennica almost got run over by a taxi (we've been very careful with traffic since), and we decided to call it a night and head home. I believe this was also the day Glennica almost bought a black market sausage. We were on the bridge between the London Eye and Big Ben and there was a guy grilling sausages and onions. They smelled incredibly delicious, and Glennica wanted to buy one even though we were on our way to have sushi. And she was about 2 seconds away from handing the guy the money when another sausage seller pushed his cart past and both of them hastily vanished into the crowd... the cops had shown up, and apparently they weren't legally allowed to sell there. Too bad, they really did look good and were reasonably priced... heck, I might have bought one too.

And that's all I have energy to write. Enjoy the pictures!
