Tour of London #TakePart2012

The morning started early with hands on time with the Samsung Galaxy S3 phone. We were briefed on all the cool features of the phone and just played around with it. Afterwards, we had a long walking tour of London. Our tour guide, Jo, had a lot of different stories of many of the iconic buildings and structures in London and it was really interesting and informative. The tour was almost 4 hours long, but it was nice to be outside just soaking up the culture!

Wellington Arch in Hyde Park
Buckingham Palace - it's been broken into several times!
Guards. So serious.
Union Jack flag!
The Olympics are starting SOON!

A nice break for some Ben & Jerry's at Leicester Square. Believe it or not, it's the first time I've tried B&J.
Countdown clock for the Paralympics.
1 of 4 lions at Trafalgar Square.
Not really Big Ben, is it? ;)
After the tour, we met up for dinner and after that, the Mobilers headed to relax on the grass at Jubilee Gardens, which is only a few steps away from the hotel. There is also a small fair going on next to it, and several of us wanted to ride the Starflyer, which bring you up 70 metres and spins you around. It was actually quite fun and the view was beautiful in the early evening!
