visit the Westminster Abbey. ...
visit the Westminster Abbey. This uber-historic church has always played a pivotal role in English history since the middle ages. From baptisms to coronations to funerals of royals, the abbey has witnessed just about all of them. Take your time to appreciate the importance of this building. It's British sacred ground! I was lucky enough to witness one of those pompous royal ceremonies which the British have perfected. One seem to think this is all done for the tourists. Seeing the royals in their ornate horse drawn carriage down the Mall and around the Trafalgar Square with lots of handsome horses escorting the entourage is classic.
Anywhere we were we did many...
Anywhere we were we did many pictures. Our father likes taking and collecting photographs so he say not to spend a lot of money but he also say we wont ever been there once again so we gotta take pics about everything. He (my father) is so cute as well.
So everywhere we were and saw something interesting or beautiful we have taken many many pics. I like pics, too. I ve many many pics about my father (for excample wen hes sleeping on the train! Its one of the best), about Nulli and about the others in my life.
St. Patrick day
That was one of the nice experiences i had in London. The St. Patrick Parade and then all the fun all day in the south bank.
The parade it self was nice & very colorful,
Afterwards we went to the south bank where all the parties and happening were. Music everywhere, food, People with customs, Shows & dancing Oh ...and beer ! ofcours and what else but an Irish Beer ?! and loads of it !
If you're in London at the time of the parade (March 16th) then dont miss it !
Time to eat!?
Breakfast traditionally is usually between 8am and 9am, and is either continental or Full English, which in addition to the continental selection, brings a really fattening meal of bacon, fried or scrambled eggs, fried bread, sausages (affectionately called 'bangers'), toast, marmalade, with strong, white tea. Sometimes black pudding (blood sausage.... UGGGHHH) or porridge or kippers are added. To be honest, nine times out of ten, I feel quite queesy aftre eating a Full English breakfast, it is just too mcuh for me, especially so early in the morning.
Tea is usually about 11am and lunch at 1pm. Sandwiches / something light is usually the norm for lunch, except on a Friday, when people take advantage and have longer lunches at the pub.
Tea (Southern England) is at between 4pm and 5pm and consists of sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, and cakes, with a pot of weak tea. In the North of England tea is usually the main evening meal, served between 5pm and 6pm.
Dinner is usually at about 8pm - and if it is much later (what often happens in summer when the sun sets late) it's called supper, except of course on Sundays when dinner is the main lunchtime meal. This is usually a roast of some sort, with roast potatoes and at least 3 different types of vegetables..
It can get quite confusing ~ some English people call their lunch their dinner, and their dinner their tea, where I know lunch as lunch, and then tea (not a hot meal, more like a snack) in the late afternoon, with dinner/supper as the evening meal... so best to double-check the TIME when arranging a dinner/lunch/supper/tea date! :)
