Oxford Study Tour UK Day 5

I might be a little incoherent in this post because I got back late from London. This morning we took a coach bus to London. I almost missed the bus because I mis-read my itinerary. Luckily I was able to hear from my window that people were leaving.

We arrived in London and quickly went into Spurgeon’s Tabernacle. One of the deacons gave a presentation on the church. Under their pastor, they are anti-charismatic, Calvinist, anti-modern or “reverent” worship (by that, I mean, they don’t use even modern hymns and only organ), and multi-ethnic.

Dr. Allen gave a wonderful presentation on Spurgeon. He is going to be with us for the rest of the trip.

We then headed over to Bunhill fields where a lot of famous Baptists like John Bunyan and other famous people, like Charles Wesley were buried. We had a pack lunch there.

Afterwards, we drove to St. Paul’s Cathedral. This is where we spent the majority of the rest of the day there. THIS CHURCH IS HUGGGGEEEE. We are not allowed to take pictures in the cathedral but trust me, it's beautiful. This was the highlight of my trip so far. We went all the way to the top…like the tippy top. It was quite scary climbing all the steps. I had some times where I white-knuckled the railing as I climbed. I did 2 time-lapses there. Since it took awhile, I got separated from the group and missed the rest of the tour. I will post the time-lapse’s in a different post because I need to finish making and uploading them.

The group then went back to Oxford, but I opted to stay in London for the evening. My friend Phil stayed with me. We walked over to Chinatown. I know it seems stereotypical, but I was craving some Asian food. We opted for some Xiao Long Bao, which is soup dumplings, and then some hand made noodles. I got the knife cut noodles with braised beef. All of it was delicious and a change of pace to the British food we have been eating.
We also had boba.

After dinner, Todd took us around to Picadilly Circus and through St. James Park and finally to Buckingham Palace.

By then it was late, so we had to head back to Oxford. As you can see, it was a long day and my face really shows the fatigue. That or I'm just be ugly hah. You can see my lip is partly swollen. That is because I bit down on it while eating really really hard. I have never bitten my lip this hard.

Tomorrow we are waking up super early and heading to Scotland. I don’t know if I will have internet so we will see if I can post or not.

Hiatus

Sorry, again...I haven't been very faithful to you all.

 

I'm going to be take a break from the blog. There are some things I need to re-evaluate in my life and I feel that maintaining a blog will not help. I still will be shooting and updating the portfolio. So you all can periodically check back on my main site for new photographs.

 

I shall leave you with a photograph that I recently took for my cousin. Thought it might be visually interesting.
