Then I headed over to the British Museum again. I focussed on Egypt. I spent over 3 hours, but still only scratched the surface. I joined a guided tour of early Egypt.
|Rames II, the hole in the shoulder is possibly from when Napoleon's army tried unsuccessfully to move the statue.|
Then it was sunny, so I went to Kensington Garden to get some much needed fresh air and sun.

Last stop was Harrods to explore the famous food halls.
