Day 2 - March 13th
Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben & Parliament, & Billy Elliott!
I didn't do any museums or palaces on this trip.
My goal was just to walk the city, visit as many of my favorite sp
ots and new ones I hadn't gotten to see. I decided to start out in Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park as I only went once during my semester in London six years ago.
(I almost went in, since this is pretty much the only of the London palaces I haven't been in yet, but decided to explore the gardens instead.)
Swan in the Serpentine (Hyde Park)
A gosling! He was so cute!
It is touristy but I loved seeing Big Ben again...
and the Houses of Parliament.
That night we went to see Billy Elliott on Broadway. It was awesome, especially those boys. Such talent! Outside the theater in Victoria we met Little Ben! I didn't even know he existed.
Little Ben's Apology for Summer Time reads: "My hands you may retard or advance. My heart beats true for England as for France."
It's OK, Little Ben. You're forgiven!
