Just another London!

Hello friends!
Back from another day trip to London.  This time we went to the Tate Modern Museum which is right along the Thames River.  One really cool exhibit was of thousands of hand-made porcelain  sunflower seeds made by a Chinese artist I believe.  They also had a lot of paintings from Picasso and Monet which were super cool to see in picture.  If you are ever in London I would recommend taking some time to stop by Tate Modern.  Right next to the museum was the Millennium Bridge (aka bridge in the beginning of HP and the Half Blood Prince!  I am loving seeing all the things in the Harry Potter movies! ha) So of course we went and took pictures on the bridge.  After that we headed down the Thames a little further to the Borough Market, which was cool in itself.  By the time we got there most of the shops were closed (everything closes early here, like nothing but pubs and restaurants are open past 6) but they had fresh fish and bread so my friends and I plan to go back when everything is in full swing!  To finish of the night we ate at GBK or Gourmet Burger Kitchen, which I would recommend to anyone who comes to London.  That's all for now, I am on my way to Ireland this upcoming week so look for some pictures!!!!
