Last Sunday the NSA took the new students to London for the afternoon. It was a rather gray and rainy day and I walked around all day in wet shoes and socks.
A statue of Richard Coeur de Leon in front of the parliament building. London seems to be filled with statues.
St James Park had a lot of squirrels in it. They were cute :) One girl put out her hand and the squirrel reached up and took hold of it and looked for food. They look so soft!
This was a monument in front of Buckingham palace with a statue of Queen Victoria on one side. Underneath her was the inscription Regina Imperiatrix. I had to smile when I heard someone next to me say: "Regina? and is Imperiatrix her last name?"
Here was a larger than life lion (there were 4 of them actually) at the base of Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square. That's the National Gallery in the background.
