I learnt a valuable lesson the other day: namely, be careful what you write on your blog, because everyone can read it. Maybe other people might also want to bear that in mind before they write rude things about people on their own blogs.
Anyway, this is no time for grumping, because today has actually been, dare I say it, fun. We’ve been exploring the City of Westminster!
First we went and took a look at the Houses of Parliament. I was a bit surprised, since Big Ben always looked a lot bigger on television. Once we’d done admiring that we headed for Buckingham Palace, which was really quite spectacular.
I feel like everyone’s walking on eggshells around me. After the way I was behaving last week I don’t think I can blame them. They’ve never seen me properly miserable before. After Iaru’s last post, I’m wondering if the only reason we’ve been sightseeing is because they want me to be in a good mood. Iaru and Bradley don’t seem wild about sightseeing, anyway. Johnny’s a bit more enthusiastic, though. He kept telling us all these weird facts about the buildings we saw. Some of it was really interesting, actually.
We wandered around the parks for a bit, then we visited Trafalgar Square. I have to say, London is nothing like either Hercynia or Hyperborea. There are so many old buildings and landmarks, and everything is so random. It’s a very weird place.
We’ve been disguising ourselves quite well, but Bradley thinks we’re still making ourselves too easy to follow. But who’s following us? It’s not like we’ve seen anybody looking for us. Actually, I find it a bit strange we’re not all over the papers. We are missing people, aren’t we?!
