On Saturday, I had to go to London to take an English exam at Acton College. After my exam, I had some time to walk around London, the oldest city I have ever seen!
It was a great experience to see this old city that I had only ever seen in movies before. I got the chance to visit the British Museum and learned a lot about Greek and Egyptian history. Here I am in front of the British Museum…
And inside the museum with a very ancient lion!
I went to Trafalgar Square and saw another lion! I am so proud that there are many statues of the amazing animals we are trying to protect all over London, and I hope this means that the people of England love these animals and want to help protect them. If that is true – please help us with a donation! The Lion Guardians still need your support! And a big thank you to those of you who have donated recently.
I also went to the River Thames and saw St Paul’s Cathedral (you can see it in the distance below).
I also saw Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.
It was such an amazing place, and I only had one afternoon to look at it all, so I plan to visit with my class mates. I’d really like to visit Buckingham Palace and the London Eye too.
After all is said and done, I am crossing my fingers that I will pass the English exam, which will determine my stay here at Oxford University.
