Lunderground (by Alex)

Yesterday, we started out by going to the British Museum. It was bigger than I remembered, and the ‘top 10 things to see’ took you to pretty much every corner of the museum. We did see the east frieze of the Parthenon.

We also saw some Egyptian mummies, some Easter Island statues, and other miscellaneous things. Next, we were going to go to Westmister Abbey, but there were two problems.

Problem A) Westminster Abbey closes at 3:00, and we were there at 5.

Problem B) There were protests outside of Parliament. And they were VERY large.

We ended up getting away from the protests, and saw a show! We say a show about the Beatles, and for £30 each. Not a bad deal. Lastly, we hopped on the tube, and headed home. In order to get back to the apartment, we needed to transfer to the Victoria Line. And then, the power surged. TFL frantically pushed everyone out of the station, escalators not in operation, and told everyone that the TFL computers would not charge us to go back in or to get on a bus. We took a bus, but according to Twitter, it took less than 1 hours for all of the stations in the area to go back up. TFL’s website did not update with information, however their twitter did. Here are some tweets sent out by TFL:

We did get on a Victoria line train at Kings Cross, which got us home.
This is what we did today.
