    That sounds horrible. And incredibly woke.

    Woke? Don't be like that.

    It was really interesting and enjoyable....until we were done eating and had to wait for our server to come by our table. Once there was nothing new coming, sitting in utter darkness for ten minutes was tedious. I wouldn't do it again because it was very expensive. But, one time....it was worth it.

My son chose to go to some air museum out in the country where Vickers was started and they had a real Concorde. My baby chose the London Eye, the Shrek Experience, Madame Toussad's and some Turkish restaurant that had "the best pancakes in London." My wife chose to take our oldest to see a Keith Haring exhibit in Liverpool (on the train) while we spent the day going to Abbey Road and some other places. I left my family and got together with two birders and went to the Kent Marshes by the Swale and birded from pre-dawn to past dusk.

    We never made it to the British Museum (I went there in 1992 and 1995). Next trip = 10 days in London.
    Sounds like the restaurant in About Time

    Sounds like Duxford - https://www.iwm.org.uk/visits/iwm-duxford

    Since visiting England in '08, I think you could spend a month in London alone and not see everything! I've really got to start planning my retirement trip to England

    I may be small, but I'm slow.

    I can't imagine myself ever going to a restaurant and eating stuff without seeing/knowing what it is. I'll try lots of stuff - but I don't want to learn of the surprise as it hits my mouth. Nope. Nope. Nope.

    Well, when you don't know that it's smoked goose paté, your brain makes it into some kind of cold cut.
