Natural History Museum

On Saturday, Nate and I went to the

Natural History Museum in South Kensington.

I had been wanting to go for a long time but just never had.

It was actually pretty neat and very informational.

It had things about human anatomy, bugs, animals, rocks, earthquakes,

dinosaurs, space, rocks, gems, etc.

And the best part was that it was 100% free!

The giant alligator. Yes, this is a real skeleton of one, and

yes, there used to be alligators that big!
This is a bunch of bird eggs from biggest to smallest.
The biggest is an elephant bird egg and the smallest is a gold crest egg.

A hummingbird egg and nest, the smallest egg in the world!

The largest elephant tusks in the world.

Now that must have been one big elephant!

Me, walking through the dinosaur exhibit.

They had a real life looking T-Rex dinosaur that moved and made sounds.

Pretty cool.

Nate next to the baby embryo. :)

Afterwards, Nate and I went cheap restaurant hunting.

We found a little place off of the Kilburn station called

"The Spicy Basil."

It is a cheap, fast type of Thai place.

There was a line out of the door!

Super cheap, super big portions, and very good.

We split a chicken pad thai,

I got a chicken yellow curry and Nate got a chicken green curry.

Not reccomended for a romantic evening out,

(we shared a table with a stranger that was eating by himself)

but good.

  1. I remember the first time we went to a cheaper restaurant in Italy we sat down and moments later another couple sat right next to us (Like RIGHT next to us). There was about 2 inches between each table and that's it! I was so surprised but my husband (who served his mission there) told me that is totally common! People in Italy don't have the same boundary issues as us American's. So I had to get used to eating almost elbow to elbow and having someone listen to my whole conversation (since I obviously could not understand their's:) I just thought of this when you said you sat at the same table as that other man. So funny that in the states we think that is so weird, but really why waste the space? haha
