On Saturday, I flew to London and met Kelsey! I still can't believe I'm actually here. On Sunday, we went to St. Giles-in-the-Fields for morning prayer, and then to the Wallace Collection. It was neat, I met my knight in shining armour there, he's pretty tiny though. I guess people were smaller back then. I told Kelsey to pick one too, and she looked at me kind of funny. I guess she is not as silly as me that way! :P

After that we went to Handel's house. To stand in the room where he composed the Messiah was an overwhelming feeling. He lived in that house for something like 35 years.

I'm not sure that the Changing of the Guard was worth standing in the freezing cold for an hour, but at least I can say I've done it! We met some people in front of us that took pity on my shortness and let me stand closer so I could see better. :P

Seeing Big Ben and other such famous landmarks was also, as I've said, surreal.

  1. Wow, London. Tiny suits of armour, unsmiling guards and gigantic clocks. My jealousy is only appeased by my joy that you get to have such wonderful experiences! I'm so happy for you :)
