Big British Moment #2: Our hotel clerk asked us, "What are you, Australian?"
Our first stop of the day was to check out the Victoria & Albert Museum. The cast iron -- very cool. The stained glass -- even cooler. The details of the carvings and castings -- unbelievable. The co-ed bathroom -- very odd. But we wrung out some of the jet-lag by relaxing in the garden by the wading pool and watching the people splash around and checking out the incredibly ornate building.

Big British Moment #3: I spilled my first part of a pint in the UK.
Yes, my clumsiness does cross continents. After finally figuring out how to order food at a pub (you do that from the bar just like the beer) I tipped over my pint glass. Fortunately, only about 1/3 of it was left by then.
(This post was written by Ryan. Although I am equally clumsy, I managed to keep all of my beer in the glass. This time).
