London Day 3 ::Historic City::

日本語 ver. HERE
Day 3 in London:
We did some market research in the city 
while looking around main sightseeing areas.
London is such a historic city with lots of old and beautiful buildings.
The color of those buildings look amazing in clear blue sky and greenest green.

We rode on a busy train on circle line to Westminster.
Soon after getting out of the station,
here it is, Big Ben.
I've seen it many times in photos,
but it didn't take so much time to realize how beautiful it is to see it by your own eyes.

Even on weekdays, this place is full of people from all over the world.

Westminster abbey, at where all the royals have their weddings and other ceremonies.
Kate Middleton married Prince William here.

Buckingham Palace, the Queen's official residence.
As the time gets closer to noon, 
more people come here to see the Changing the Guard ceremony. 

The weather was hot and nice.
It must be really hard for them to do this everyday with those heavy clothes on.

After that, I walked about the city to explore some shopping areas.
From Marble Arch all the way to Covent Garden without taking a break!!
My feet felt a lil bit sore when I stopped by a pub for dinner.

Had some dark beer called "Black Cab Stout."

My friend told me to try some pork pies... so I did.
hmmmmm why are they served cold???
It might taste better warm.

This is another pie with mashed potato and gravy.
This was nice and warm. I liked it.

This pub was very close to the station and
seemed to be busy at every night.

Especially World Cup football game "England vs. Uruguay" was on that night.
It was fun to watch a game at a pub away from home.

To be continued....
