Kensington Palace
On our third day, we saw the Albert Memorial, more of Hyde Park, the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain and the Kensignton Palace. We got on the Big Bus again and passed by James Barry's house (the writer of Peter Pan who I really look up to) and then to Madam Tussauds Wax Museum. I was able to purchase a child ticket at the museum because I do look like I'm only 14 even though I was already 20. At least I was able to save money hehe.

So we went inside Madam Tussauds and saw a pretty lot of wax figures of Hollywood stars, politicians, and other famous people. My favorite were the three wax figures from the Pirates of the Caribbean movie since I'm a huge fan of Jack Sparrow aka Johnny Depp. And then I saw one more figure at the corner and wondered who it was from the movie so I looked closer and the damn figure moved and talked! Bloody figure was alive and I screamed! It scared me to death and good for her I didn't have a knife with me (and why would I carry a knife around London, eh?) and I would have stabbed her to death already.

Hehe. I wanted to check out the Chamber Live (scary part) but my aunt was scared to go and I didn't want to go alone after being traumatized just minutes before. The last part of the museum was the London Spirit, if I remember it right, and there you will see some sort of history of the city.

After that we went back to Victoria and had lunch. I surfed the internet for a while to catch up on friends, and then in the late afternoon we went to Oxford street. There we found so many shops to choose from but all we did was walking and just looking around. When we started feeling tired we went back to Victoria (our hotel is in that area) and had some steak for dinner. We talked a lot that night and went home at 11 pm already. I slept immediately when we got back to our hotel room.
