London Day 3!

London Day 3!

I've left London a week ago and gone on to Germany.
I'll get back to Japan tomorrow, but first, here is my final day in London!

I stayed in this small hotel near Goodge Street.
It was a really small Bed & Breakfast type place.
There were some rooms with a separate bathroom, but the shared bathroom was perfectly fine!
It's like staying at a friend's house, since the bathroom was just down the hall.

The room was TINY, but who cares?
I'm in London to walk around the city, not sit in my hotel room!

The entire street was filled with little hotels just like mine!

I went shopping at Topshop but I couldn't find anything I liked!

I also went to H&M.
Can you believe there are THREE H&Ms near Oxford Street (a major shopping area in London)?

Here are some street views of the area around Oxford Street.


Here is Canaby Street (which is also where the MAC Pro store is!)
Here is a view from the top level of the bus!
The highlight of Day 3 was going to the British Museum!!

I LOVE museums!
The British Museum is free!
Compare that to the "recommended" admission of $20 at the Metropolitan Museum in New York!!!

I LOVE the Met as well, but the "recommended" admission is really high!!!

This is what greets you at the entrance:
The Hoa Hakananai'a

Elgin Marbles, also known as the Parthenon Marbles,
are disputed - but really beautiful.

These mosaics are displayed along a staircase.


There were several mummies on display as well.

I love this model!

I did a little bit of shopping on my final day in London, which I'll show in my next post!

xoxo, K
