"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -- Mark Twain

Egypt in London
Two posts in one day! I had to share a few pictures from my wanderings in the British Museum today (especially for my SIL who got me started reading the Amelia Peabody books by Elizabeth Peters several years ago... for those who have never read that series, Amelia is an Egyptologist from England and when she is in London, she spends a good deal of time pestering the curator of the British Museum about the Egyptian rooms).
My favorite collections were the Egyptian collection and the Greek and Roman collections.
