Well I guess I'll start off by saying I LOVE London, and its just as awesome as I remember it 5 yrs ago! It's still super expensive, I'm almost out of pounds and I haven't even gone shopping, but I still love it. It's busy, there is Starbucks and pubs at every corner and lots to see and do.
We had a busy day. Took the tube to Green Park and walked to Buckingham Palace. Walked through Green Park (the actual massive park) to Big Ben and the Parliament Buildings. Stopped at Westminster Abbey to take some pictures (the line up to get inside was insane! Tho all the line ups here are insane!). Next, we crossed the Thames River and walked along it past the London Eye, Shakespeare's Globe, Modern Tate, Millennium Bridge, St. Paul's Cathedral all the way to London Bridge. We were able to take pictures of Tower Bridge there. This took a long time, it's a long walk. We had a few stops along the way.
Tonight we took the tube to Piccadilly Circus. If you haven't been there before, it's London's version of Times Square. It was insanely busy, had lots of bright billboards and lots of stores and restaurants. We came back to Kensington and had dinner at a pub. Candice and I finally had pub style fish and chips with MUSHY PEAS!!! Yummmmmm! Well candice didn't like them that much, but I love mushy peas!!
When we were in Piccadilly Circus we bought tickets to see a show tmrw night. We are seeing, Let It Be. We figured you can't see a better Beatles tribute show then in the UK! Tomorrow is the last day in London before we all split up. We are planning on hitting up Harrods, Oxford Circus and the show in the evening.
Like I said when I started today's entry....I love London, but my wallet doesn't feel the same
