Today was long. After some slight trouble with the Tube (subway), we arrived at Buckingham Palace in time for the changing of the guards. It was especially packed today because the guards were practicing for the Queen’s birthday and preparations were being made for Pres. Obama’s visit tomorrow.
After a rough start to our trip because of American Airlines, we made it to London Sunday afternoon. We fought our jet lag and took in the British Museum that was full of Egyptian mummies and Greek sculptures and art.
