Friday: Late start, but more exploration… I went to visit the museums – I went to the National History museum, I think I went as a child but don’t remember – this time I think I will – it was quite awesome and totally free to enter and wander. I liked looking at some of the dinosaurs or what is thought to be dinasaurs and the many other suspected creatures of the past.
How anyone can predict something took millions of years as a fact of reasoning when I can’t see how the process to measure that is, then I don’t know – I find it strange when people say that the earth is millions of years old… Strangely enough, in another part of the museum it stated that the sun, and planets only came into existance less than 10,000 years ago – so which is it? It can’t be both can it – I say neither is correct and i’d say were probably never going to be able to know.
Anyhow, History museum, Nice place – very busy. History and predictions of the future. I learned of Volcano’s; I’d known about it, but little things stuck out that I was unaware of. Makes me want to watch more of discovery channel by the emenses of information about the nature around us.
To see… Bugs, birds, dinasaurs, use of energy, fossil fuels, future plans of life, sea life, lots of people, and many more that I saw but probably didn’t quite see totally. I’d say go if your in London, nice to see so much and it was free too.
Met with another friend after they finished work, We both managed to get to station at same ish time even though we were to meet 20 minutes later. She spotted me, I only realised when she was closer… We went to Nandos – very nice chicken wrap for me – quite filling.
Afterwards more wandering, and chatting – My feet/legs are saw from walking but feel fine at the same time. I think this trip is started to help me realise some more fitness is needed but its nice to wander and explore.
Headed back near 10pm, I was back at flat by 25past, managed to get to stations just as transport arrived. Traffic doesn’t stay stopped for long in London but if you miss the currect connection there is usually another in a few minutes time.
I do think the transport system is quite amazing in London – their website for directions is great giving you estimated times and links between walking, trains, subway, and buses and offers alternative routes. The whole idea of it, its so complex yet simple to use. I really like it – the design and initial setup must have taken ages but now, very easy to use in my opinion and the “Oyster Cards” that allow transport so easily without cash and tickets mixed up.
I plan to go to the science museum Saturday, and explore a little more and just relax. The plan of relax, take some time out and read a bit aswell as visit the city has devloped into more and I like that. I’ve often planned stuff in the past but when its put to action nothing is quite right. This time, with little to no planning things are running quite excellent.
