We walked through Green Park today to get the train to the British Museum. The park was full of squirrels and pigeons. I saw four squirrels in the park, two of them were chasing one another around the tree.

At the British Museum, we saw the Rosetta Stone from ancient Egypt. It is very detailed and decorated with hieroglyphs. Also we saw the Egyptian mummies, even the animal mummies. They have such a large collection of Egyptians artifacts. We then went to see the Greek Parthenon collection. There are rooms after rooms filled with these artifacts. We saw others like Anglo-Saxon and Roman Britain collections.

After we left the British Museum, we went to St Martin-in-the-field Church. We lighted some candles for my grandparents and looked around the chapel.

Then we went to the National Gallery at Trafalgar Square. My mum and I wanted to see the Sunflowers by Van Gogh. We also saw paintings by Monet, Renoir and lots of other famous painters.

In the evening, we went to see a play at the Gielgud theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue in the West End. The play was called The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. We all really liked it, especially my brother as he read the book before.
