Here is a link to the hotel we are in:
The neighborhood is beautiful toward the palace end of the street. The side away from the palace begins to get a bit more city with shops, pubs, and tourist type places. There have been many double decker bus sightings.
And I am certain that this is the phone booth that Dr. Who uses, but Mo thinks it is an elevator. (referred to as a lift here in London)
The area around the Palace has the beautiful stable called the Mew. There are fountains with statuary all around. Columns with the names of all the areas that England has colonies, and the Royal guard out front of the palace of course. Today we will be taking a tour on the big brown bus, and there will be far more to share after today. We haven't even hit the beauty shops and shopping yet.

Well, people, that is all I have for today. I will write more as we go about our adventure.
