London - Day 2: After a fantastic night celebrating @doriiyaki
‘s birthday, managed to take in a traditional English Breakfast at famed Balthazar, before taking a stroll through Central London to the British Museum.
Couple notes on the museum:
1. The collection is incredible...
2. ...but these guys throw around the word “discover” way too loosely. It’s impossible to appreciate the beauty and history without also acknowledging the imperialist, colonizing nature of how pieces got to England, the forced seizure often in the wake of conflict and violence. #teamkillmonger
3. Still pretty amazing in person, particularly the exhibits on Egypt and Greece
Also, I’ve had to catch myself twice mimicking a British accent. This is going to be tough, but I need to get it together. Wish me luck. 🙈
