Today was a little less stressful than yesterday as far as sight seeing goes.  We started out the day a little later than usual and headed out to the British Museum.  I was really excited about going there and had been looking forward to it since before we left.  The museum has free admission so that was cool...We headed into the museum and were amazed at the size of the great court inside.  I knew the museum was huge, but I didn't realize just how big it was.  We got to see some really cool stuff inside including the Egyptian mummy collection and the Rosetta Stone.  Honestly, there were more busts, necklaces, pots and miscellaneous historical items in the museum than I ever thought possible!  We spent a few hours there and then headed over to Trafalgar Square and Picadilly Circus.
Yippee!
  The square was cool and I got some good pictures of the crowd enjoying the open plaza.  We went back to the hostel for some rest and then took in all the sights at night while they were all lit up.  Big Ben and Parliament were amazing at night...I couldn't take my eyes off of them.  I had a delicious salmon ramen at Wagamama along the Thames and then we called it a night.  Tomorrow is our last day in London...we have to check out in the morning so we'll probably hang out until we take the train to Paris.
