Big Ben 9:49 AM
Woke up at about 2 AM, watched TV in my room until I could get breakfast. BBC, there was an American baseball game on, stuff about the World Cup ... etc ... Eventually the kitchen was open downstairs - full English breakfast was included in the price: 1 egg, toast, bacon (not what American's would call bacon though), skinned tomato & a hash brown/potato wedge thingie.
Lots of walking today. Main sights: Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace. I got to Big Ben just before 10 AM. I stood around to hear it toll the hour & some security guy thought I was a threat. Even after I tried to explain why I was just standing there, he didn't seem to understand why. Oh well, all & all a pleasant day.
