After breakfast, our lecture focused on Jenner, Snow, Lister, Pasteur, Nightingale and Fleming, biomedical scientists and clinicians who came to recognize germ theory and develop important ways to control infections.  We then caught the tube to Westminster Station and headed to the Florence Nightingale Museum.  It was an important and interesting museum, but paled in comparison to yesterday’s Churchill Museum.  Then we headed to the Imperial War Museum featuring particularly the science and technology of World Wars I and II.  It also has a very poignant Holocaust Museum that deeply touched many of us.  The rest of the day…and weekend…are free time with the stipulation that students should attend a worship service of their choice on Sunday morning.  Students are off to tour Arsenal’s stadium or Parliament, shop at Harrod’s, and countless other venues.  About one-half of the students are planning to take a student tour of Dover tomorrow.
