    London, the last few days.

    January 9, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    After Essex, most of what I did and where I went were no photo places but here's the report.

    Sunday I spent the entire afternoon in the British Museum with a very distant cousin on my mum's side. Had a ball.

    Monday Jenn and I visited a small 'museum' known as Denis Severs House. Google it as its a bit hard to explain - a sort of living still life art installation which has recreated rooms in the family home of Hugenot silk weavers over various generations and circumstances.

    Monday night we saw the musical Rent which had been on my wish list for 20 years.

    For my last day in London we saw Charles Dickens' house. A residence he occupied for a few years when first married is furnished almost entirely with his actual furniture. We also saw the original, handwritten, first draft of Oliver Twist.

    The last museum I dragged my poor daughter through was The Museum of London which traces the history of the city from before the first humans to the 2012 Olympics.

    I'm composing this in flight en route to Bangkok where the last adventure awaits.
