My Vacation - The London Experience Continuation

The continuation...another London's landmark....The Buckingham Palace, the official residence of British Monarch. It is one of the main tourist attraction where a major ceremony called Changing of the Guard is held daily during summer and every other day for the rest of the year. New guard exchanging shift with the old guard and this process is accompanied by a guards band. Be sure to be early so you will have a nice spot viewing the guards formation and for the picture taking, its really fantastic and exciting, a lot of people really do visit here to watch this ceremony.
Outside the Buckingham Palace is the Canada Gates (with black and yellow color) this is the entrance to Hyde Park which is one of the romantic and cool park here in London, including also the St James park. After strolling the in the park, we went to Starbucks to have a merienda. We then proceeded to one of the world's famous department store in London's Knightbridge.... The Harrods. We just do window shopping and buy small items for my niece.....
We then proceeded to London's Museum...the first Museum we visited is the Science Museum. We did not manage to go to 2nd to 5th floor because our camera battery is too low already but we do have some pics in the museum to show. It was a great and wonderful day (although tired and exhausted) seeing this amazing tourist attraction here in London.
