English Please!

We are in jolly old England! We took the train from Paris...through the London's St. Pancras station. Upon disembarking there is a lovely statue that greets you as you leave the train platforms for the main station...not a great photo but hope you can see the statue of the's huge and the photo just doesn't give you an accurate perspective.

Bryan has a one day conference here so we are staying until Sunday. Today I was on my own and hit the National Gallery.

Lots of great European art to be seen here from the 1300s through the early 1900s. No photos allowed! Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Reubens, Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh...just to name a few. I'm definitely getting my art fix this year.

Here's a view of Trafalgar Square looking out from the entrance of the National Gallery.

A sea of people! It's still feels too much like winter here. We were greeted with rain mixed with snow upon our arrival yesterday.

I'm still battling a sinus infection. Might require a doctor's visit at some point. I was so thrilled to be able to walk into a pharmacy today and get Sudafed. I did get some great cold medications from a Paris pharmacy but somehow in Madrid things went bad again! I'll be in the USA in a week. I am ready to get to my Alaska home but only after a few more days of fun in London.

back to Alaska so soon! wow so great that you can see London and get your sudafed, hope you don't end up having to see a doctor too, but better safe then sorry! I would love to see Trafalgar Square thanks for sharing the photos, some old spy novels I have read have scenes there :)

Thanks for sharing the photos. I know that someday I will be able to see these things for myself. I will have to wait a little while though.
