Buckingham is very beautiful with the red flowers around. It hasn't rained here much at all though so the grass is dead.
The changing of the guards has to be one of the most overrated things ever. I didn't even plan on going but when I walked by and saw the mobs of people, I stopped. The horses were the greatest part but they came and went fast.
As much as I love the tube, some days I tell myself I'm just not going to use it. I crash at the end of those days from walking so much. I ended up in Covenant Gardens later this particular walking day. They cycle through the street performers. I was so tired I was content to sit and watch them for hours. Once one performs, the next comes in. I they have them time slotted.
This guy was truly amazing.
