London, day 2.

I’m laming out on this blog post tonight because 1) I’m tired, 2) I took about 36473 pictures today, so I think those + commentary = a sufficient documenting of today’s adventures, and 3) I’m tired.

Day 2: Tuesday, 1 July

Hours of sleep: 8 (doing much better than yesterday)
Caffeinated beverages consumed: 2

Westminster Abbey, also known as my new favorite place in the world. (Besides home and possibly CNU.) I actually started to draft a longer blog post about this place because I loved it so much, but I probably won’t post until I get back home.

This tourist-attraction golden dude looked like he was levitating, and I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how it worked. That is just a trompe l’oeil, right?

This is St Marten in the Fields – a small chapel with great acoustics. They offer free lunchtime concerts every weekday.

These lion sculptures are made out of chain mail! The English do a great job of utilizing modern artists to help showcase ancient art. So cool.

Then we went to the Tower of London, which looks like a cool tourist attraction from the outside but was really the place where thousands of people got beheaded in medieval times. Cool stuff. I would not be surprised if this suspicious moat water held many bones at the bottom.

And then…. WE SAW WICKED.
