Tea Time

Before the trip, Luisa arranged to tour the Warner Bros Harry Pottter exhibit with Miguel, since they are both big fans of the books and movies. I loved the books but didn't make it through all the movies and Zeca doesn't really care about either, so, we decided to go our own way.

Our only real plan was to have afternoon tea at the British Museum so I made a reservation for that and we figured we'd sort the rest out later. 

Today was the day. Luisa and Miguel left the hotel at 6:20 a.m. and we slept in. In fact. We didn't manage to leave the hotel until 10 a.m. 

This was our day:  

Took the metro to Picadilly Circus and got lost looking for the M&M store. Twice. 

Visited the M&M store and then got lost trying to find Covent Garden. 

Visited Covent Garden via Chinatown.

Put on and took off rain jackets 197 times. 

Took the metro to the British Museum and didn't get lost after exiting the subway. Repeatedly exclaimed, "I'm getting better at navigating!" while Zeca bit her tongue.

The Museum was insanely crowded and Zeca and I were both overwhelmed so chose exhibits to visit based on which ones had the least number of people in them. it worked out well for us. 

Then, we had tea. It was the best part of a rather hit and miss day and we enjoyed it thoroughly.
