Here are a few pictures from my first day in London.
Victoria & Albert museum – the courtyard. The sign said “no puddling.” I’m assuming that means jumping in the water.
Wooden sculpture. Dude killed dragon and is now just chilling with it. The detail is incredible on this piece.
Teeny, tiny Hasidic Jewish crown. Would fit nicely in your hand.
Beatrix Potter watercolor. An entire hall was dedicated to “Peter Rabbit.” Each page is framed and displayed in a line so you can read the book.
Concert and theatre posters. Loved the Sex Pistols one.
Extravagant stage costume.
Royal Albert Hall at night. Got a double decker bus in there too.
Albert Memorial at night. Queen Victoria really loved her Albert! The whole area seems to be named after him.
