London in the Springtime

Inside the British Museum

Enlightenment exhibit

This mosaic from Hinton St. Mary is one of the oldest surviving depictions of Christ (c. 300-400)
I just loved this adorable little sample set of Spode!
I loved all the delicate carved jewelry (these rooms were all 1700-1900 European)

These were little season tickets to the opera, with the name & box assignment carved into ivory

For dinner we went on a pub crawl around Fitzrovia, from Tottenham Court Road to Warren Street tube station
We had pies at Newman Arms

I love this fake blue historical site sign...
