London, England – April 29 and 30 2005

Get up this morning and go have a simple make shift cheap breakfast from corner store of a cheese sandwich and celery.

I walked through Bloomsbury into the West End going through Covent Garden, Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus.
Used London Underground to Madame Tussards wax museum.
I saw
Trafalgar Square
Madame Tussards wax museum an interesting visit here. Has all the celebrities in wax as statues. Was bit of disappointment considering thought they were supposed to look real. Celebrites to see here are Arnold, Beyonce, George W Bush and many others. This is one of the original museums of Madame Tussards in the world.

The American Embassy
The Canadian Embassy
Canadian Pacific Building
Lots of old houses
The financial district in Westminster
Hyde Park and Speakers Corner
Buckingham Palace. St. Paul’s Cathedral
The Tower of London and The Tower Bridge
Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre
The Marble Arch
Westminster Abbey
Parliament
Speaker’s Corner [It’s called Speakers Corner because public executions were performed there and people were allowed to talk / speak their mind before getting the chop.]
– Madame Tussards wax museum was a big disappointment I found all the statues don’t look real. Very over rated and a waste of my time and money.
London is a cool city.  I found my way around pretty well.  It was little though getting back to the Imperial Hotel though. :)

London is full of people.
London is full of shops and stores.
A large number of people going to work were dressed in suits.
Downside is all london pubs close at 11pm!!

= Evening at the London Pub – a few beers ok price, 2 pounds a pint.
Lunch was spent at Harrad’s mall which is where the rich and famous shop. You can buy anything from shoes to farm animals in this place. I go have lunch at an italian lunch counter and have pizza and some pepsi, for about 15 pounds, but all well what can you do.
