Weather was at its whimsical best last weekend when it blew hot and cold oscillating trying to figure out whether to let the sun shine or to let the rain doors open. Otherwise windy and rather chilly outside, the opportunity was ripe to explore a London venue under covers. Where else one could be amused in London but in many of its free museums and especially when a visit to the British Museum counts as the pilgrimage to explore the heritage and history of mankind and civilizations from around the world. With our sunglasses and umbrellas both with us – we went to immerse ourselves in the musings of the British Museum.
Although the rain had the upper-hand to cause distress, the distressed jeans were put on to prove otherwise. Paired with a pair of white sneakers, I put on a trending tweed blazer to balance out the look so that it appeared intellectual but perfectly casual too for a weekend visit to a museum.
Best part about London is that you can always become a tourist here and immerse yourself with scores of people who come to visit this magnificent capital of the diverse world. I walked up the stairs of the British Museum to an elevated level of enlightenment and knowledge. The soft ambiance of the grand courtroom immediately created a calming effect. There was a strong sensation of space, a lot of vacuum around. Although filled with people, it still had left a lot of emptiness may be to be filled up by the cumulative knowledge or combined presence of all?
Having explored the galleries for Greece, Egypt, Mexico, North America, Middle East and having marvelled at the wonders of the civilisations across these regions – we realised what a feat it is on behalf of the British Museum to have amassed under the same roof, this humongous knowledge free for consumption by the world citizens. Not distressed at all, rather upbeat and uplifted by the museum experience wearing my distressed jeans, I came out to catch the last sunshine of the day.
