Throwback Thursday: Egypt  
Throwback Thursday

I have my 10th anniversary of action figure pictures taking this year. Those who were there may remember the very first time ever that we played and I asked you to please bring many Egypt things. And then I only could sit back and watch in amazement how many hands built this scene. Ladies and gentlemen, I present the very first ever Stargate picture we took in May 2007. We and I have come a long way since! But I couldn't have done it without you and your enthusiasm. Oh the fun we had together!

I remember studying that entry in all its details ;)

Hah, I know exactly which tourist shop you mean! I have been in there myself and it was indeed awesome. Lots of things I haven't seen in any other shops. I still regret not getting that little case with four little beer bottles with real English beer. I never saw them anywhere since.

Next time I am in London, I'll have to go back to that shop. I'll also have to go back to the British museum. We only managed the Egypt and Greek things on ground floor, plus the special exhibition with some American Indian / Inka stuff they had at the time, and a bit of Chinese vases on first floor and then decided that our legs were hurting. I didn't make it till the coin collection upstairs, I hear they even have GDR coins!

We were in a doll and toy museum in London also with toys and dolls from all over the world and surely enough I found some from my childhood as well. That was pretty awesome.

Oh how funny that you know the exact store! :D (We also ended up buying a lot of things there, and so much of the stuff I never saw anywhere else, too.)

We also only properly saw way less of the British museum than we would've likd. We did the Egypt and Greek things, and spent the most time in the Assyrian wing, and besides that I don't even remember - we did go upstairs for some things, but we also passed by entire floors unvisited - it's just such an enormous place, and the kids were still a little young at the time (O was 7, L was 9) to enjoy a full day of museum-ing.

The toy museum also sounds pretty cool!
