"Thank God I have done my duty!"
National Maritime Museum & Royal Observatory

The first time I visited the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich,
I could hardly believe that they let us stand in the presence of the naval coat that Lord
Nelson was mortally wounded in at Trafalgar. Now, it's a regular pilgrimage when I visit London, something
like my duty.
This time I brought Jen, too. Afterwards we made our way down to Heap's Sausage Cafe, and
then walked up the hill to the Royal Observatory, where time begins. The Prime Meridien runs
right through it, and for a moment, although we stood right next to each other,
we stood on different hemispheres.
