Day 3 in London. We first went to see the Changing of the Guard, we heard you have to get there very early in order to see. We arrived 1.5 hours before it started however we got spots right up front and the crowds came shortly after. The ceremony was long but traditional and good to see once. I don't think I would watch it again if i went back unless i was with people who had never seen it. The changing of the guard involved soldiers marching, marching band, soldiers on horses, and more. The band performed 3-4 songs in the middle which were very upbeat but one sounded just like the star wars theme song which was really funny.
Next stop the Tower of London.
Our evening was spent traveling to our next destination.... Cork, Ireland. We flew for $15 euros by taking a cheap flight with Ryan Air.
