So the lovely Alexandra and I are continuing our travels here in London and then tomorrow it's off to Oxford, where she studied for a semester. Yesterday we went into the city and to my favourite museum - the Victoria and Albert, which Lonely Planet describes as sort of like "the nation's attic". We visited the hilariously odd Tippoo's Tiger, a life-size wind-up toy of a tiger eating a British soldier, and considered visiting the "Cult of Beauty" exhibit on aestheticism, but the queue was too long (we were tired).
Thank you so much, Alexandra and family, for letting me into your lives! And thank you so much, blog readers, for being patient with my constant travel for the last month and the inconsistency of updates!
