After breakfast, I hired a carriage for a ride in Hyde Park and stopped to see the Albert Memorial. Fabulous structure.
Because I was always fascinated with Princess Diana, I just had to stop by Kensington Palace. Look, the gates were open, they must have anticipated my arrival, how kind.... although that is not the receiption I received when I strolled through the gates like I lived there.
Then off to St. Pauls Cathedral..
By this time I was pretty much famished as I had to walk everywhere. The American dollar is tanked right now so it doesn't get me much abroad. Now it was time to find a nice place for High Tea English style. Before I left, I searched through my book "The Great T ea Rooms of Britian" and I had chose The Waldorf Palm Court. Had to hitch a ride.
OK, the food was famous, I decided to stay and have tea until they kicked me out. Which I think was pretty much after the fifth pot of tea. I guess they didn't like my English accent. Can I help it if I kept slipping in there the famous "flat" American tone? I mean really. I was just trying to savor the moment, make a memory you know? I wonder how many times they say, "those damn Americans" haha
Well Big Ben said it was time to go home.
I wish I could have visited longer, maybe on my next visit, ya, when the american dollar gets me dollar for dollar or double or triple my value, right. hahahahaha. THANK GOD for the internet, as window shop traveling is free! Hope you enjoyed my travels. :)
