Phew. What a week. I worked Mon-Thurs last week (yes, they make Americans living in England work on Thanksgiving, as punishment for escaping), then took Friday off to meet up with my cousin (on his way home from study-abroad in Cape Town) and my high school friend (in town for a college buddy's wedding). Then, Saturday, I rang 3 (out of an attempted 4) quarter peals with my bell peeps, and then Sunday we had Stowmarket Thanksgiving. I need a nap.
We visited the Horus in his museum, then went and had very tasty (and warm) dim sum in Chinatown.
I met up with Evan after lunch - we started out at platform 9 3/4 in Kings Cross station, sadly empty of all things Potterish.
We saw some Boris Bikes (I WANT one!)
We walked south through Covent Garden, then went to Trafalgar Square, and warmed up with tea in the crypt of St Martin in the Fields. The fourth plinth has a jumbo ship in a bottle - I thought it was really cool.
After tea, we walked across the river, catching this slightly blurry shot:
We ended up at the Tate Modern, where we saw Ai Weiwei's Sunflower Seeds. SO gorgeous.
