For our last day in London (at least on this leg fo the journey), we decided to take the advice of the Lonely Planet, and take a bus into the city. After the bus, we started the Whitehall Walk, another Lonely Planet suggestion. Lots of famous buildings in such a small place! By half way through I was very tired of staring a buildings though, so I dragged Kate off through the parks There are LOTS of parks in London, I was very impressed that so many have survived the population pressures of the city. It was really nice weather, and a lot of other people were enjoying the parks too. We wandered over to Buckingham Palace (lots of statues, lots of gold, even more tourists), St James' Park, Green Park, Hyde Park (where we hired a paddle boat, which was too short even for Kate - my legs were seriously cramped) and finally Kensington Gardens, where we saw the statue of Peter Pan, and lots of Squirrels - I took photos of the squirrels. We finished at Kensington Palace, where youngesters on rollerblades were doing very tricky things on the broadwalk, and hundreds of people were kicking soccer balls around. It was getting on to 8pm by then, and we had to get home. Luckily, booking a cab for 4am wasn't a problem, so we just had to say goodbye to everyone, pack a suitcase of things we've left with Ingvar, and go to sleep. Got to sleep about midnight.
