London: Day 3

It's been another great day for us. After breakfast, we went to Hyde Park and walked around for a bit. We found the Serpentine Lake (pond? I don't know) and took pictures of all the birds.

After walking around a bit more, we went to Buckingham Palace. There wasn't really much to do there because we couldn't actually go inside. We did find out, however, that the queen had come in about 30 minutes before we got there. Bummer.

As you can see, Greg's beard is coming along slowly. He says it's itchy though, so it might not last too long.

After Buckingham Palace, we went to lunch at Cafe Rouge, a little French restaurant, where Greg ate gruyere cheese and didn't even throw up.  Then we headed over to the National Gallery where we saw paintings by Seurat, van Gogh, Monet, and Degas. The ballerinas by Degas were my favorite. Greg liked a winter landscape by Monet.

Next, we decided to go check out Covent Garden, which we actually thought was a garden. It's not. It's more like a little shopping center with a bunch of lame street performers. But we did enjoy some hot chocolate and had pizza for dinner.

The best part of the day, though, was after dinner when we went to Swan Lake at Royal Albert Hall. We were on the very last row in the very top balcony. But it was still incredible.
