1st: CONGRATULATIONS Sarah for graduating! I can’t wait to hear about your speech!
The last two days have been very busy. Yesterday, I had Marketing all morning and then went to the National Portrait Gallery in the afternoon. They are having a special exhibit for the Diamond Jubilee called “Queen: Art & Image.” It went through her six decades as Queen and showed the different images that have shaped the public’s perception of the royal family. I thought it was really interesting, and there were a couple of candid photos of the Queen when she was younger that I really liked.
This morning I had Advertising, and then went to the Queen’s Gallery in the afternoon to see the Leonardo da Vinci exhibit. It’s called “Anatomist: Inside his mind, Inside the body.” It was a collection of da Vinci’s sketches and studies of the body. I really liked it! The gallery did a good job explaining what everything was, plus it was amazing to see how accurate he was. After the museum we walked around St. James park and took a ton of pictures. It has been really cold here, but it stopped raining this afternoon, so it was nice to be outside and walk around.
I am planning on having a very touristy weekend, and then we are talking about maybe going to Paris next weekend. I am so excited!
