I got my bike in the box yesterday afternoon while others did some sightseeing. I always have a little melancholy when an adventure is over. We had a lovely dinner at the Florence Arms.
I got to the tube and got to the stop for the Imperial War Museum and it started to rain. The audacity of Mother Nature. We cycled for 2 weeks and got wet once for 15 minutes. I was hungry and went to The Hercules for lunch.
There was a chilling and in depth holocaust museum that was incredible in its scope of viewing the historical timeline of the fanaticism of Hitler and Nazi Germany and how it had impacted the Jewish People it touched along that timeline and how more severe it became. A tremendous quote of 1935 was “There was no country that we could stay in and there was no country that wanted us”. I hope that is right. It impacted me deeply. There were refugees at that time and they went places but it was becoming more difficult and impossible. In my heart I had just wished for many more to have been able to leave during that period of history.
Went to the Metropolitan Cathedral Church of St. George. Beautiful stain glass.
