this chap in the parker was acting very randomly by the horse guard near, er, horseguard’s parade. the poor guard was looking a bit freaked out.
i googled for ‘bank holiday activities‘ and the second suggestion was back to funkypancake. what are the chances of that ?
anyway, jane and i used our home-alone bank holiday saturday to go up to london to visit the photography exhibition at Tate Britain then go on a guided tour of the houses of parliament.
i go in to the houses of parliament for meetings quite regularly but it was excellent to do the tourist thing and understand some of the history of the place. it was also very cool to be able to stand (we weren’t allowed to sit) in both the house of lords and house of commons in amongst the famous seats.
probably not one for little kids, but if you’re having a grown up day out in london, definitely worth an hour of your time.
unberleevably, i wandered through china town for the first time last week. i don’t normally do west to east at that latitude. or perhaps i just didn’t notice before as it wasn’t covered in paper balloons.
so here’s a photo with a random posing tourist for your enlightenment just in case you’ve never been either.
