Saturday: Museum and Market

Saturday morning we popped down to the London Museum for a peek at the history of the place, which was a wonderful encapsulation of a lot of what econ 427 will be about (one of our classes, titled 'Economic and Social Development of Great Britain'). It is a great museum. 

From there we moved on to the Portobello Road Market-an open air market has been on that site nearly 1,000 years- a true example of the beginnings of markets and capitalism. 

This is the last full day in London as tomorrow we leave for Cambridge and must bid this incredible city goodbye.
