Yes, so, here's me at Buckingham Palace. Definately a shot for the photo album. It was just a pity that everyone else was too knackered to actually go and have a look around the city. That shot was taken around 3pm London time, and I'd been up since 11 am London time. It was still pretty cool though :-)

BTW, it was VERY cold.

Here's a shot of the Big Ben clock tower.
It chimes every 15 minutes. The guy I was with, Claudio, the First Officer, had his video camera on him and struggled to capture Big Ben chiming. I don't know why he didn't wait for the proper time.

And here's a shot of me next to a proper English telephone box. They're much nicer than the ratty ones by Telstra back home, that's for sure. Mind you there's nothing special about them on the inside.

So here's one of the newer Double Decker buses. I don't have a picture of the older one, they were hard to find.

Here's Westminster Abbey. It's not a very good shot, but we were up very close and it's so big and magnificent. And historic. A lot of people were there too, and it's hard to take a nice picture when you have other tourists walking past the lens all the time.

And here's the ever famous Harrods in Knightsbridge. They had everything there, including this petrol powered kid's hummer worth 22000 pounds. And the largest plush elephant I'd ever seen. Plus the cutest teddy bears, and all this gorgeous designer gear. Good thing I wasn't getting paid until this week.

Here's a shot of the Wellington Arch. To be perfectly honest with you guys I have no idea about the significance of this monument, nor did I have time to find out with only 24 hours in London. I'm sure I'll get more flights to London though and so I hope to make more of an effort to learn about the historic stuff. Nice area though.

Here's a photo pf the Big Wheel. Is that really it's name?

Last photo! You can't go to London without going on the tube!
