Our first day sightseeing in London spanned from Picadilly Circus, Hyde Park, Buckingham, Parliament, Big Ben, and Westminster Abbey. It was a day full of seeing big sites and trying to beat jet lag.
This was my second time in London, and I have yet to catch the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham- note to self: plan to see this next time I’m in London. However, we were in London on the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. We were told there was going to be a big parade passing by Buckingham Palace. We waited around a bit, but all we saw were some horse drawn carriages racing by, and a marching band that played one song, then stood around for 30 minutes.
