Good Morning London
This morning, I took a stroll around central London. I live pretty close to London so I’m frequently popping in for one reason or another. This time, I’d been to a concert the night before, so I had some time to kill before catching my train home. It was sunny, but very chilly. It had snowed that morning, though the snow hadn’t settled. The streets were reasonably quiet. Well, quiet for London.
After an hour or two of random wandering, I ended up at Buckingham Palace, just in time to see the changing of the guard. I’d never actually seen it before, so it was an unexpected treat. Before the new guard had arrived, a military band entertained the crowd with a medley of tunes from Spielberg films. I kid you not.
To get to the palace, I had to run the gauntlet in St James’ Park. It’s a lovely green space in the bustling city, but it’s always packed with tourists and increasingly, with fat, fearless squirrels and their stupid & grotty pigeon mates. I always try walking briskly for fear of being either poo’d on or mugged for nibbles but Spanish school groups and Chinese photographers always hinder my plans.
