I know I’ve already written one post about our trip to London, but I just couldn’t resist posting some of these pictures.

Next, let’s examine the city’s penchant for animal statues. 

I expected to see lion statues and sculptures, and this guy was one of many, but he appeared to be a bit taken aback by something.
