Mom and I are back in London now, and will be for the rest of the trip. We spent the afternoon seeing the National Gallery...Botticelli, Monet, Manet, Cassat, Renoir, Degas, Rembrandt, Vermeer, and many, many other greats. I'm floating around London on a little art-induced cloud. Plus, we had Indian for dinner...score.

We spent last night in Oxford because Mom wanted to see Blenheim, the ancestral home of Winston Churchill and the largest residence in England, which is saying a lot. And when she asked where we should go for dinner, I took her to downtown Oxford to dine in the Eagle and Child pub.

Please leave a comment in this post if you understand the signficance of that pub choice. No webcheating. I expect at least four people to get this, and I'm guessing that naruvonwilkins and troglodyteking will be among them. And yes, I took many nerd pictures.
