Chelsea flower show, London

I'm in London and today I was at the Chelsea flower show. I arrived yesterday and went straight to the British museum because there is a special exhibit about 'sunken cities'. There are 3 cities near Alexandria, Egypt that were built by the Greeks. Because the earth at the Nile delta is not stable, these 3 cities became submerged. Now excavation hs brought up on shore tremendous amount of statures and other ancient relics and is on loan to the British museum. It is a spectacular exhibit. And today I spent the whole day at the Chelsea flower show. Its a once in a lifetime deal, very impressive. It was crowded in the afternoon when ticket prices gets discounted. One can trust the Brits for putting up a great flower show.
