Buckingham Palace - Change Of Guard

Sometime in the late morning, every day, the guards at the palace change, in an elaborate show that draws in hundreds of tourists. We went too :)

The palace itself was disappointing - just a large edifice, with very little grandeur, at least from outside! Compared to the Mysore Palace, for example... What was amazing though was Green Park, adjacent to the palace - a beautiful, dense forested area right in the center of the city (oh, but wait till you see the massive Hyde Park!). Here are some pics of the park, the statues, the palace and the change of guard...
