Out and About v2.

Could it be; the homebody is finally beginning to get out there and live a little?

This morning there was sunshine for the second day in a row (!) and I had made plans to meet up with one of Jason's workmates and explore the Museum of Natural History.



The museum was absolutely massive, in a stunning building. I wandered around with S for a few hours, checking out a stack of exhibitions. I loved the displays in the raw materials section - it looked so wonderfully artsy that I just had to take a picture of it.



After a few hours, a few more girls dropped by the museum and joined us in our exploring - we headed straight for the dinosaurs, followed by the human body and animal sections. I had a ball ambling around the museum; I would've loved to have had a pedometer attached to my hip because my feet were killing me at the end of the day!



I also had way too much fun with the warped mirrors. (It's the stretchiest camera ever!)



After a late lunch/early dinner in a pub in South Kensington, we made our way into the city to catch the end of the Chinese New Year celebrations - turns out we were a little too late. We missed the fireworks, but went into Trafalgar Square to check out the atmosphere. There were still loads of people around for a Sunday night, a big stage with lanterns everywhere and lots and lots of red signs and decorations. A great sight.



I was born in the Year of the Rat - so I know this year is going to be a fantastic one.

I was born the year of the rooster which is something I DID NOT KNOW for 26 years. I thought I was born the year of the dog but apparently the year of the dog started January 25 in 1982. I was born January 3. I'm still not over this discovery.
