Mini and the King

If you've been following us on Twitter, you'll know that Mini successfully stowed away to London last week. Mini learned how to squeak with a British accent and rode a double decker bus but sadly spent most of his time hidden in That Girl's suitcase while she was busy at her conference. Apparently conferences aren't welcoming of capybaras. Hmf!

On her last day in London, That Girl had a day off and took Mini out exploring. They went all over London and the day ended at the gigantic British Museum, home of the Rosetta Stone and many other amazing artifacts. Mini's most exciting moment was at the foot of the Assyrian King Shamshi-Adad V. The stele, or stone slab carving, comes from around 824 BC. That's almost 2800 years older than Mini! Here, the King is depicted next to the symbols of his principle gods. I wonder if one of them was a capybara?
