Hi again Steve, I know I just bombarded you with some fun facts about Perth, but I also want to inform you of the awesome vacation your sister and I are going to take. We’re planning a trip to London.
It is going to be so much fun, too bad you’re stuck in class and can’t come with us. I know it won’t be as fun as we went hostel hopping through Europe, but I think it will still be a lovely time. Jane has been doing a ton of research and is trying to organize everyday with the most sightseeing opportunities possible.
As you know, I would personally just enjoy watch the sea come and go all day, but this might be fun too. It will be more exhausting I can tell you that much.
There are some things that she is planning that I’m very excited about. I think they will make my sea look just like muddy water. We’re going to be going to the British Museum. Did you know that this is where they house the Rosetta Stone? I love seeing history in person.
We’re also going to be going to Trafalgar Square and visiting the National Gallery. Ugh, National Gallery, this is one of the times that I would prefer the sea. You know how I feel about art.
Another day we’ll be going to the Natural History Museum. I am proper excited about this. Their dinosaur exhibit looks amazing. There is a life sized blue whale! Can you imagine, it is going to brilliant.
With the good, comes the bad. I will be once again dragged to a art museum, but unlike the National Gallery which museum is filled with eye-bleeding modern and contemporary art. It’s called Tate Modern and it is located on the Thames, so at least I’ll be able to look out the windows and see my beloved water.
I’m also excited about going up in the London Eye, it’s going to be proper fun, and the Science Museum. They claim that the Science Museum will make your brain perform Olympic-standard mental gymnastics. I’m not sure how they plan on achieving that, but I’m ready for it.
I convince Jane to go to the Tower of London with me. You know how much that sort of thing scares her, but it was her punishment for planning a trip to Tate Modern. The Tower of London even as a “zoo.” I wonder if there are going to be real animals there.
I’m sure we’ll be planning much more, but we’re only going to be there for two weeks so we’ll see how much we can fit in during that time.
