"There's no way that's a statue!"
On the last Friday of every month, the Victoria & Albert Museum host an event called "Friday Late". The museum keeps its doors open a few extra hours for people to meander the halls with food, drinks, and music. The artwork and rooms were stunning of course...
And naturally we began to goof off a bit
I found that the statue and I had a lot in common. Somehow I'm not as photogenic as he is.
A talented sidewalk artist left behind this chalky beauty on our way out.
The V&A is a huge space with countless things to see. I'm definitely planning a return trip to catch what I missed. Continuing on with the night, we traipsed down an alley and suddenly found ourselves at the back door of a speakeasy with this dapper looking fellow.
Early one morning Chloe and I woke up to explore some of London's famous gardens before class. We hit Kensington Gardens first on our walking tour.
Here we are at the Round Pond! Some trivia for you: King George II once kept his edible turtles in this pond.
Hi Will and Kate!
This pub right outside the Gardens was feeling especially festive.
We walked our way through Kensington and into Chelsea where we passed through Holland Park.
I couldn't resist a pose with the park's namesake, Lord Holland.
We were very surprised to find a family of peacocks living in the park!
But I did manage to make a new friend!
This kid was fearless!
If you look closely you can see two (rather naked) sunbathers enjoying the beautiful day.
It was certainly a treat to escape the bustling streets of London and enjoy a sunny morning in the parks. Sorry for the longer post! Lots to share!
