Museums and Birthday Brunch!
Vasi's Birthday was on Easter Monday so I caught up with her for brunch. (I've finally moved out of her place - well for a short time anyway - I'm currently house sitting with a friend in Bethnal Green.)
So being one to always seize the day, I decided Monday morning was the day to finally check out an exhibit at the beautiful British Museum that I'd been wanting to see for ages - The First Emperor: China's Terracotta Army.
The advance tickets sold out months ago so the only way to see it was to queue for one of the 500 daily tickets released on a first come first served basis... I was on the bus at 6:30, and standing in the queue by 7:00am! I was standing in the cold (prob about 5 deg) for about 2 hours with joints starting to ache, when I should really have been asleep, but I managed to get a ticket so it was worth it in the end!
After the museum, I headed to Fulham for brunch with my big sis and a fun afternoon ensued :)
Not quite as good as the real thing but no photos allowed. The detail on the terracotta soldiers was phenomenal. They were life size, they all different facial features, hairstyles - amazing!
I walked part of the way to brunch - from Holborn to Victoria. Mainly because it was snowing and I've never been in a city during snow! It was cold, but fun :)
I'd been in the cold and not had breakfast- you can understand my joy at having cake!
Birthday cuddles :)
