ELGIN MARBLES: We departed Hever castle for London in such high spirits (and time-shifted confusion) that we left two of our number there by mistake and had to go back and fetch them; so we had plenty of time to examine the delights of the English countryside and contrast it to modern London as we threaded our way through its streets to our hotel, St. Margaret's, a few minute's walk from the British Museum and our next morning's destination, where we viewed the sculptures Lord Elgin took from the Parthenon. This group of women well illustrates the wet t-shirt look perfected by the classical Greeks, who contrived to reveal the body as much clothed as unclothed.
