England London Greenwich Ferry Buckingham Palace

14 September 2009

Greenwich

Today I did a lot of walking.
First I went to see the changing of the guard at buckingham palace. Its not particularly impressive, a brass band comes, some people yell, you cant see much etc. They close down streets for this, the amazing part is they do it every day.
Then I rode on a ferry to Greenwich, where time itself was created, you have to hike up a large hill and theres astronomy and clock displays. The view is very good, and its all free. The ferry however costs an absolute fortune, take the train if you ever go.
