At long last, after about five months here in England I got to see the heart of London. Our first stop was London Bridge which have been fairly known to me ever since I was a child. When I got off the bus a sudden feeling of excitement rushed through my spine. I'm going to see London Bridge. It was more beautiful in reality than in photos. I couldn't stop admiring the sturdy structure with its admirable design. It was actually called the Tower Bridge. London Bridge is next to it but it's just an ordinary looking bridge.

Still at the River Thames, we crossed the famous bridge to see the St. James Castle. It was so big it takes a day to go around it and watch the shows reliving the olden times. There was a looong queue but we just passed by them.
Out next stop was at the St. Paul's Cathedral which is another London's must-see. It was beautiful outside and inside. I must say it's awesome.

From there we went to another bridge where there are flocks of tourists. What's in there? The House of the Parliament and Big Ben. It's another impressive building.

We also went to Picadilly--the center of London but there's nothing really special in there.

In Trafalgar square people were seated on the steps some to rest some to watch the Olympic updates.

Finally, to the Buckingham Palace. We can't miss it, can we? We passed through a park and chatted with the friendly birds but the one thing that caught most of our attention was the friendly squirrel. Frank found a peanut and called for the squirrel who hurriedly hopped toward him to grab the peanut from his hand. After claiming the prize, it scampered away looking for a safe place to hide the nut. Then it came back to get the other nut.

Surprisingly, we bumped with Dave and Marty of all the thousands probably million people in London that day. Together we head for the palace.

London is so big there is so much to see but we haven't got enough time. I really had a nice time in London.
