Our first stop was the Marble Arch near Hyde Park. We stopped by for a while to take some pictures and then went back to the bus stop to catch the next bus. There were a number of tourists waiting as well and good thing we were able to catch some seats for ourselves at the upper deck. The guide we had on the bus was really funny but I can't remember her jokes anymore. I just remembered she was funny.
Anyway, we stayed in the bus for a while just enjoying everything we saw. We passed by St. Paul's Cathedral and though parts of it were being renovated, I could still see it's impressive beauty. We then got off at Trafalgar square and after posing for some pictures there, we walked all the way to the Houses of Parliament and saw Big Ben. The feeling of finally seeing it for real is undescribable. After so many years of just watching it on tv and movies, I was finally there looking up to it!
There was a bus stop for the Big Bus Company nearby so we hopped on the next one and continued our journey to the Tower Bridge and then to Tower of London. Before we took the river cruise we had some fish and chips for lunch. The taste wasn't bad but I couldn't eat all of it. We then took the river cruise from the Tower of London and saw a lot of the city like the London Eye, the London Bridge (different from the Tower Bridge), the London Aquarium and many more. After that, we went back to the hotel for some rest, had dinner and went to the Buckingham Palace at night.
