Day #5- Natural History Museum and Hyde Park

Due to the activities of the night before (pub crawl) we didn't get up until about 12:30.  I know, I know, we are in London and sleeping in is something we can do when we get back to America, but we really needed the extra sleep and we are so glad we got it!  After we finally got our lazy butts out of bed we decided to go to the Natural History Museum to fulfill the history part of our assignment.  I really enjoyed that museum!  Because it is natural history, it had biology, geography, zoology, dinosaurs, etc. type things inside of it.  The building itself is a piece of art, absolutely beautiful and ginormous also. We only went through the dinosaur, mammal, and aquarium parts of the museum and we were there for about 2 hours.  We plan on going back if we have time because it was so full of good information and interesting artifacts we want to finish the rest of it.  
After we went to the museum, we decided to stop by Hyde Park and look around because touring a park is also a part of our assignment for the trip.  Hyde Park is the biggest and most beautiful park I have ever seen.  It has so many beautiful plants and lovely walk ways.  There are also a ton of really awesome trees, one grows with the limbs down toward the ground instead of toward the sky and forms a very cool little dome underneath!  
After we toured the park we went to eat and went back to the room where we stayed up until 2:00 a.m. talking, like we do every single night.  We are tired, sore, a little hung over, but still having an absolutely amazing time! Pictures of this day will have to be uploaded later.
