Today we headed into London after a couple of errands out in Wellington. Our first stop was the British Museum where there are many many many famous things such as the Rosetta Stone and marble friezes from the Parthenon and ancient chessmen and Ming vases and mummies and treasures from Sutton Hoo and that Japanese painting of the blue wave crashing over, which we did not actually go see because the place is huge and you had to make an appointment to see it in person. Also they have this:

Although Daniel Jackson's grandfather discovered it first.

Next we headed to Borough Market, a giant covered food market. It was also amazing. We didn't buy much, just some snacks to eat.
|This area was mostly meat.|
|Green Market, I think.|
Next we went to the Tate Modern. It's in an old power plant, very cool space.

After dinner at a pub by the Globe Theater and a walk across the Millennium Bridge, we were ready for some sleep!
|Guess who ate which dinner|

We ate at the Swan.
