lovin’ the capital

24 May

I would have posted this yesterday, but as I had been up since 4am I did not have the energy to do so. Decided to spend the day in London as I have a free day and read that there was a Michael Caine exhibition on at the Museum of London. Weird thing was when I got off at Barbican it started to hail, thankfully it stopped and it was cool getting into museum as it involved going up a escalator in another building and waling across a funky bridge. Went round the Caine exhibition and it was really cool seeing one of a kind pictures, footage from memorable films and interesting facts about his life. Decided to wander round the rest of the museum and saw the very first apple computer, mobile phone and ‘Bill and Ben’ and ‘Andy Pandy’. It also dawned on me that the last time I was down in the capital I never got the chance to go to the Churchill War Rooms so I thought, ‘Let’s do it’. It made me smile when I realised that getting to there involved stopping at Temple (scene from Skyfall) and the poetic thing about this was police officers got on at this stop. Even more so when the exit I took to get onto Westminster was the one in the film too. Once it side it was get a ticket and phone and just walking round listening to all the info there was about Churchill, the war and looking in the gift shop. I was tempted to get a Navy Captain’s hat, but it was too big for my head and practically fell over my eyes. After walking round there, and going to Trafalgar Square I thought I lets call it a day that and because it started to rain.

I think the next thing I will do is head to Leavesden Studio and go on the Harry Potter tour, when that will be I do not know hopefully when the weather gets better and possibly during the summer time. Who knows.
