Our first day in London!
In the morning, we visited Westminster. As soon as we came out of the underground, which was very crowded, we saw the Big Ben and Houses of Parliament. It was quite impressive. Then we walked to Westminster Abbey and took some pictures around this area. We also saw the London Eye from a bridge next to the river Thames.
From Westminster, we walked to Buckingham Palace through St James Park and we were lucky enough to see the Queen leaving the palace in her royal car!!! We had lunch in Trafalgar Square, right next to the National Gallery and we saw a street musician who was very talented. Some of us were a bit emotional listening to his music.
Afterwards we visited the British Museum, where we looked at some of the Egyptian exhibits and our last activity of the day was Convent Garden, where we saw street artists and went shopping.
It was an amazing day but we are all very tired and looking forward to tomorrow.
