Today was a slow start.Thereâ€™s absolutely no point in rushing around
when youâ€™re trying to learn to completely switch off from the regular rat
race.First task was to get booked into
a hostel back in London.Seen as me and
Lori were booked in the next night at Clink,
I chose that one.Next job was to get
back into the centre and meet up with Lori.
It had been years and years since Iâ€™d been
to the Imperial War Museum (I know, I know.... museums again), but I do have
fond memories, even if they are childhood/early school memories.I told Lori we could check it out, especially
as a huge part of Britainâ€™s attraction is her history.
In the 5 hours we spent in there, we didnâ€™t
even get close to seeing all the exhibits adn artifacts.Unfortunately closing time crept up before
weâ€™d even got stuck into WWII.We did
manange to get all the way through WWI, the model of the trench and the Blitz Experience included, the inbetween
wars period and all the appeasments; propaganda; and politics of that era, and
the Holocaust Experiencet.Granted it is an information overload, but
itâ€™s an absolutely brilliant museum.I
would suggest though to tackle it in two sittings if your interest in the war
history is that strong (mine is).There
is a vast amount of information on each of the World Wars, so for future
visits, I will be considering one war at a time.For now though, Lori has to dart off, and
Iâ€™ve got to check in to this hostel for the night.
