Trip to London

Before Christmas a few of us from college went up to London for a few days. Apart from photographic exhibitions I managed to visit a few of my favorite places,including the Natural History Museum.  I love London although I don't think I would want to live there, there are so many fantastic places to visit that I never seem to fit everything in, always a good excuse for a return visit!

Because we were lucky enough to be staying centrally, not far from Russell Square, I also visited the British Museum,  there was a fantastic display in the central court celebrating the Mexican Day of the Dead, there were pink lights on the ceiling like Chinese lanterns and a huge skeleton by the stairs, in the evening the whole area was lit with pink and orange floodlights. The whole effect was colourful and eyecatching, it was interesting to see the mix of old and new together, especially in such a historic building, with its own mix of old and new.
