Out of the Jurisdiction: Last Morning in London

I made it through the British Museum.

All the schoolchildren in the UK descended on the British Museum.  No air conditioning.
Perspiring pre-teens.  Even the best-mannered kids make lots of noise and emit blasts of heat.
Noise and heat rise, and I was the tallest person around.

Elgin marbles.  Check.  Rosetta stone.  Check.  A few Egyptian and Assyrian kings.  Check.

I'm outta here!

Time to go to a Heathrow hotel for an early flight back to the USA in the morning.

What an honour -to have all those children turn out just to welcome the distinguished American visitor. They won't do that for Trump.

Nice... you have a sharp eye for detail. Have a safe journey home.

Jack, I have greatly enjoyed your posts from this trip. Wishing you fair winds coming home.

Excellent shots! I'd love to see the British Museum someday.
