Europe 2005 - Its a Small World After All

L. was really surprised when someone came up to us at the British museum and said "Hey" and my reply was "Wow, didn’t expect to see you here"? During graduation one of the guys that I had a class with figured out that he would be in London the same time we were for a work assignment. We pretty much left it at that not thinking it worth the trouble to try to meet up in such a large city with unknown schedules. We ended up spending the rest of the day together looking through the British museum (Rosetta stone, lots of mummies) and the Tower bridge.
Actually seeing the Rosetta stone was beyond words for me. Just knowing that before they found that there was no way to read hieroglyphs. This was also the first time of seeing things that I had learned about in my art classes with the Assyrian and Egyptian art.
