London, Final Day

So today is the very last day of the trip.  We head for the airport tomorrow morning.  We did a few things today but nothing crazy.  First, here was the view from our hotel when we checked in yesterday.

We're in the Grange Holborn.  Very cute hotel.  Large but doesn't feel too impersonal.  Great location.  Close enough that this morning, we walked over to the British Museum.  I won't go through everything we saw as many of you were with me last year when I visited.  If not, look back to Jan/Feb of 2013.  Here are just a few photos of some of the highlights.

We then wandered down to Forbidden Planet, one of the best nerd stores on the planet.  One whole floor of toys, games, t-shirts and figurines and another floor of books.  Best store ever.  :-)  I spent far too much money on Doctor Who stuff. 

The last thing we did tonight was a play called the Drowned Man. http://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/shows/the-drowned-man-a-hollywood-fable  It's a massive, interactive experience.  R had been to something similar in NYC and loved it.  So we explored the play for three hours.  I wish I were able to go again to really get a better feel for it, but it was amazingly detailed.  Quite a production. 

So that's really, truly it for me on this trip.  Hopefully there will be another big one towards the end of the year.  Until then, safe travels!
