I was in London during the Pope's visit, so I'm glad I went to Westminster Abbey early. There were a few days when it was closed.
You can see Big Ben in this picture
The houses of Parliament
I went to Camden Town for some shopping and sightseeing
It's a quirky town north of central London.
For some reason, most of the food stalls had Chinese food.
Although there is art like this on the walls, the area is big for alternative & goth clothing.
I also went to the Tower of London
They have guided tours there. Our guide was a pretty good actor with tons of British humour.
The Tower of London is probably best known as the place where the Crown Jewels are held.
I'm still a bit groggy from jet lag, but I'm going to try and get some more posts about London up within this week! Yes, including my UBER HUGE HAUL.
