After 11 days in Tuscany, we flew from Pisa to London. To be honest, I wasn't too looking forward to this leg of the trip. I never had a favorable view of London: it never excited me, and as someone who have strong associations of foreignness to travel, somehow, the idea of visiting London wasn't too appealing to me, as I felt that it wasn't foreign enough. I admit, I wasn't on my best form when I was in London: I hated the crowds, I was depressed, and the weather sucked. But at least, there were interesting museums to visit, and they were pretty much all free of charge. So one of the things we visited was the Tate Modern.
The Tate Modern is perhaps the most famous museum of the Tate Group. It is located in an old power station right at the banks of the Thames River.
You can see the main hall on the above photos, featuring the Turbine Room. Sometimes, there would be massive special exhibits in here, but when we visited, there weren't any.
Judging from the pictures above, you can see that this museum specializes in art that are more modern than not. That I enjoyed a lot. There might be too many people, but at least I enjoyed the art. And guess what? This museum is free! There are special exhibitions that have an entry fee, but the permanent exhibitions were huge that even though we opted to visit just the permanent exhibitions, we still spent two hours in there, at least.
