BRITISH MUSEUM, LONDON
The British Museum is one of the world's oldest and finest museum's. Started in 1749 and it's an exhaustive and exhilarating stampede through world cultures, with galleries devoted to Egypt, Western Asia, Greece, the Orient, Africa, Italy, the Etruscans, the Romans, prehistoric and Roman Britain and medieval antiquities.
When the winter is always so hard Let's go to visit some of the beautiful exhibitions...

Well, my memories, as you call it was not ended. I,m thinking about getting back to London, defenetly. I thought to do it in September, but a depression taken after Mietzsche,s death, the crissis and my mother,s althzeimer made me to change my mind. But still i belong to some places around Soho, Candem and Kentish Town, Hampstead, Highgate...-my goodness---Sheperds Bush, Ealing Broadway or West Acton or...Regent,s Street a foggy and frozen early sunday morning. Obviously during the winter. I studied at the South Thames College and I lived also in Roehampton, nearby Richmond Forest... I gave a Magistral Lesson, about my poetry in the Queen Mary College, in Mile End. London, for me is an alive map, not only memory and although have passed more than twenty years and Maggie Thatcher spent a lot of diallectic rubbish rottening the country... :-)

Your stay in Londom had to be very originative...Memories are made of this...
Hugs and smiles...

One of my favourite places in the world.
Beautiful music to go with it.
I would not like to have been on Tower Bridge when the top photograph was taken. :-)
