Some much to see, so little time

London is so wonderful to visit. So much to see and the shopping is superb!
We went to Buckingham Palace yesterday along with most of London's population to see the changing of the guard. With the little I could see, the pomp and ceremony was wonderful and the coppers working as crowd control were extremely amusing with the way they dealt with the crowds. I do wish I was at least a foot taller though. With my bum so close to the ground, I find it difficult to see things in a crowd! Anyway, some is better than nothing.
From there it was off to St Pauls Cathedral. I did expect to be dodging lightning bolts but clearly managed to avoid them at this point. Although do bear in mind we have a tour of the Vatican booked whilst in Rome so "up there" might still have a chance!
Did a little bit of shopping in Regents Street in the morning before the Buckingham Palace visit. Clothing is fantastic here.
I believe we have a change of Government. Ron and I are trying to work out where we should emigrate to. It would seem that with the Mad Monk in charge, we will probably be met at the border with guards and sub machine guns, placed on to a rickety boat and pointed in the direction of Indonesia with "on your bike sunshine". Oh well. have to wait and see.
Anyway. Off to Tower Bridge today and possibly a visit to HMS Belfast.
Catch you all soon
Bryan and Ron
