Who in the world has school vacation in February? The British, for starters.
On Monday, prior to departure, I thought I would saunter into the National History Museum in London, Monday should be quiet after all.
Here was the line from two vantage points:
The guard said, “Well, its half term.” Half term? This website collects school holiday schedules from a number of countries, linking to the Westminster City Council’s schedule as an example with 6 terms and various half terms. I cannot imagine how parents cope with so many interspersed breaks.
Fortunately there was no line at the neighboring Victoria & Albert Museum.
