Bloody tourists

Bloody tourists

I'm as guilty of this as the next person, but this did strike me as a particularly undignified pose next to a very dignified subject. Oh well, being a tourist does make you do strange and often stupid things, like get emotional in front of the memorial stones for the great poets and composers in Westminster Abbey.
So now we're in London (as evidenced by this photo) and true to form, the weather has been cold, rainy and windy. Thankfully we've had very lovely accommodation with old friends and have been spoilt rotten with an excess of food, wine and fantastic company.
We haven't really done much sightseeing so far, and I'm really hanging out for a big Nerd Day where I hop excitedly from exhibit to exhibit in the Natural History Museum, British Museum and Science Museum. Might have to bribe Phil with the promise of hot chips for lunch to get him through it all though...
