I love having visitors! Last week Mr. 416expat’s parents joined us for a two-week visit. It’s a little cosy in the apartment flat, but it’s a great excuse to go and see the sights. On their first full day in London we started the exploration of the West End.
We saw the changing of the mounted guards and their journey down The Mall.
We walked to Trafalgar Square
And Canada House!!! Please note, how totally awesome the weather is! It’s sunny! and Warm! In London in October!! The locals inform us this is very unusual but quite welcome. I’ll say!
We took in the National Gallery
And saw more of the mounted Guards at their home base. Please take special notice of the sign. They have your best interest at heart.
We walked near David Cameron’s house. He’s the Prime Minister. He is surrounded by a very large fence. He lives on Downing Street, but this is about all you can see.
We wrapped up the day by going across Westminster Bridge, past Big Ben and Westminster to the Imperial War Museum. They had a really cool exhibit on the Ministry of Food. More on that tomorrow!
