12:48 am - Charms of the Southeast
To those in the north of England, the southeast is relatively overpopulated and expensive. Though true, there are nevertheless desolate locations and quite nice populated areas. Guildford is a charming town, at least in the historic center, with lovely gardens around the castle. The Science Museum (London) has a gorgeous glass suspension bridge, held up with cobweb steel wires, which sings to those who walk on it. It's in a new permanent exhibit called "The Challenge of Materials." The Natural History Museum's renovation is certainly entertaining and full of information, but it reminds me of a museum-equivalent of a theme park - nothing wrong with this, mind, it's just quite a novel experience for a museum.
