On our way from Piccadilly Circus to Trafalgar Square today, we happened to come across the Queen’s Guard practicing for a major ceremony to be held tomorrow at Buckingham Palace. These guys are good! Not only were they in step, but everyone lifted their legs a uniform height, and they lift their legs very high. That is exhausting, and you just know that the soldiers train for hours and hours that nobody sees, and they have to be in great physical condition. There were several hundred soldiers on parade today.
I am heading out to Singapore in a few hours, and I am not looking forward to the flights. Almost an 8 hour flight to Dubai, change planes, and an almost 8 hour flight to Singapore. I’ll be in the city about 48 hours and then do it again, only in reverse. We will have a few days left in London, and then home to Minnesota. I’ll try and post some pictures of Singapore.
