I found a mummified fetus!

Oldest book I've ever held.
This man wrote about melancholy (which he probably died of. He would deal with it by going to the wharf and listening to the sailors swear and joke with each other and he'd smile. My heart goes out to him

When Fordham makes an overnight trip mandatory, puts your professor in a nice hotel literally across the street from the train station (nice area), puts you and your six classmates in a hostel, won't pay for wifi, and chose the scariest and sketchiest area of the city (we walked past people doing drugs and three homeless shelters). Thanks.

One of the original city gate locations
Oldest tailor
London's earliest shop. Was a survivor of the great fire of London
We went to a little macaron shoppe and their recipes are so strong. The lavender and rose and geranium all taste like the flowers smell. It's incredible. Kacie mentioned it's like a little piece of magic. Notating for purpose of final project
Ginger: 19-20; died of an arrow to the shoulder

The pub Fr recommended to us
Just some photos from yesterday. We found this festival by the Thames that was free and so much fun. We also rediscovered Pimm's. So I was the only person who knew what it was and then they just kind of drunk it here straight with soda. It's not mixed with other alcohol. It's like a fruity beer.

The hotel saves energy by having you place the room key in the wall to use the electricity. Also there are buttons for housekeeping, if you're asleep, and to get some help up here.
They drive on the left They pass on the right But it must be universal that you pass on the left side of the escalator and those standing stay to the right
"Go inside and we'll take a picture." He hurried her inside the little box. She smiled like the sunshine and her laughter rang like faerie song as she complied. When she turned around to make a silly face, no one was there. Instead, the sharp pitch of the phone beside her caused her to sharply spin back to the black receiver. She answered, slowly looking around to see if anyone was watching and inserted the coins requested. "Hello?" She spoke softly, bewildered. "Marry me?" .... I'd have been upset about paying for the phone call.
Big Ben! Parliament!
Cute name
Had some Korean grilled octopus (the waitress kept going "it's spicy" but it's really not) and a small scoop of green tea ice cream and some coffee before Big Ben and Parliament. In love with this city already but the food is a little rough.
We had to use the stair truck in our arrival because all the gates were taken and I've never been so excited in my life.
