You know, it shocked me to learn that one of my best friends and roommates, Lauren, had never seen the Queen or any of the Royals yet she had lived in England till she was like 10 years old. And since then, she has gone to visit on multiple occassions.
Today started out like the others: my internal alarm clock set off and I woke up at promptly 6:45AM. I stirred the others to get out of bed, and we all went down for yet another gorge-yourself breakfast. I say 'gorge-yourself' because if you eat a lot of free food during the morning, you're less likely to want to buy snack food during the day! Afterwards KP and I left Uncle D and Aunty L at the hotel, looking our best, and headed off down to the palace. It was a crowded street (as far as this street goes), but wasn't nearly as bad as you'd expect of a big city. In fact, even though London is a hot hub for tourists and citizens alike, it's not nearly as crowded as any of the Asian cities I have visited. As we walked along we got a bit of attention from passersby -- KP surmises that this is because we weren't with the other two members of our party this time. Hmmm. I think she got a few ideas from that, mayhaps... but more than anything I blame KP for being such a primary example of jailbait.
