I knew I would like London, but I think I found it even more impressive than I thought. We crossed the Thames river, took shots in front of Westminster Castle and the London Eye.
This was probably one of the areas of the city that I liked the most. Nothing can be compared to the magnificence of that palace. I took a few shots of the Queen Victoria memorial I had seen only in books. We then visited Wellington's memorial and took a little break.
Karl also showed me Harrods, London's fanciest shopping mall. After walking around a bit, I decided it was a bit "too expensive" for me to buy anything and we resumed walking towards Hyde Park. Karl explained that it is probably a little bit larger than Central Park in NYC, and also with more open space. We lied on the grass and chatted for a bit. I needed to catch my breath after such a long walk. The rest was lovely and we then visited Prince Albert's memorial and Lady Di's quarters before going to a pub and have some beer.
It was an absolutely great day in London, I think I saw much more than I thought I could see in such a short time. But that's because of my wonderful tour guide, travel buddy and friend Karl.
