|Subject: Re: London - Buckingham palace|
Hi again Harriet,
Something I noticed when Alex mentioned the changing of the guards. First of all, you can always see something at the Horseguards not far away from Downing street.
The changing of the guards at Buckingham palace is a daily thing - but ONLY in July and August. The rest of the year it's every second day. And we were those kind of people who always come wrong. Like, somebody said it would be on the odd days, but then we found out, that this was the case the month before, and in "our" month it were just the other days... sigh. Became kind of a running gag for us.
As the tourists queue for hours for the good places, we chose to watch the guys on that little bridge left of the palace. They come from that direction, so it was ok for us.
