Mom & Dad visit: Day Three

Leave a comment
Architecture, London

The day went like this:
Woke up at 8, took a shower at 10, got ready and went to Holborn with Melissa only to find out that the store we were going to visit is closed on Sundays. So I went back to the hotel room and read for a little and napped for a little before my parents came back. Then, while Dad was napping, Mom and I researched car rentals and then went shopping on High Street Kensington. I got two lovely new shirts from Laura Ashley because Mommy is the best ever ❤ When all the stores closed at six, we went back to get Dad and then the three of us took the Tube to Victoria and looked around. Went to a restaurant called The Shakespeare where I got Chicken Tikka Masala–a delectable Indian dish. Then we walked to Buckingham Palace which was glowing and beautiful.

We strolled down the St. James’s Park Mall before ending up at Westminster Abbey and Parliament again. The moon was foggy and mysterious but it didn’t come out well on camera.

Mummy and Daddy in London!

Not a soul in sight. At 10pm Sunday night, London sleeps.

We waited till 10pm to hear Big Ben chime. I took a really good video but alas, it cannot be uploaded easily and I was dumb and taped it vertically, which means the image is tilted. But it was a really powerful moment—the chiming of the bell—even with all the surrounding loud traffic. I doubt I will ever tire of walking around the city of Westminster.
