Fun in the Sun in London

Well, the sun finally came out and it was a beautiful day in London. We met first thing in the morning and headed out to the British Museum of Natural History. We toured the Darwin Center (sorry no pictures allowed) and experienced flesh-eating Beatles, a giant squid and some specimens collected by Charles Darwin himself.

Yes, we were wearing matching t-shirts in London.
After we visited the Darwin Center, the students had the opportunity to tour the rest of the museum. The rest of the day was a free day for the class. Some students planned to visit Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and the London Eye, while others planned to see a show in Covent Garden. We will be meeting first thing tomorrow for class, a trip to Borough Market, and our second London Walk: Darkest Victorian London.
Before dismissing the students for the day, Dr. Firenze and Dr. Saraceno decided to embody an example of kin selection. What better example than that of the scary twins from “The Shining”. You can almost hear them beckoning, “Come play with us, forever and ever and ever…….” You can also kind of understand why none of the students invited Dr. Firenze and Dr. Saraceno to join them for the afternoon (or maybe it was the matching t-shirts).

  1. The Sarenze Twins – the only living example of Trisomy 25.

  2. Just when I thought it wasn’t possible to make this scene any creepier…
    (By the way, I suspect this photo may have been doctored. Either that, or the individual on the right owes a great debt of gratitude to the the razor industry.)
