This is Bond … James Bond – Hope Janelle Berninghausen

Well today was another fun filled day.  After I woke everyone up (like the mother) we got ready and headed off to The Barbican Centre’s exhibit “Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style.”  There were 12 different rooms, each with different memorabilia in them.  We weren’t allowed to take pictures in the exhibit, but I’ll describe several rooms.  The girl’s favorite room was one that had all of the costumes from each casino scene.  There were dresses dripping in diamonds and tuxedos from most of the movies.  There was a room that told the story of Ian Fleming, and a recreation of M’s office.  Another really interesting room had a ton of gadgets that Bond has used in the movies, from a replica of the underwater car, to guns and cell phones.

Tomorrow, we plan on going to Regent Street, and then to the Science Museum to see The Dark Knight Rises!! We are starting to realize that our time is very close to being over. There are still so many places we want to see and so many different kinds of food we want to eat. Hopefully we can get it in in the few days we have left!!
