After my recent trip to UK, I decided to watch a TV show called ‘The Crown’. I have some fascination with the Royal family I can’t even begin to explain. I remember my mum taking me as a kid to see the Queen when she visited Sri Lanka many moons ago. I vividly remember climbing on a tree top, but despite that I did not see her.
When I applied for a visa to visit UK about 10 years ago, the visa officer asked me why I wanted to visit UK, I told her to see Buckingham Palace (It was no lie) but she thought I was being cute and therefore made me jump through hoops to get a visa. When I got there, even though it was a cold winter day in February, guess what I did? Yes, you probably guessed it, I visited the palace. I remember standing outside with the throngs of people watching the change of guards and staring at this huge palace trying to imagine what it must be like. The highlight of that trip was when the Queen (I think it was her) left the palace and I was finally able to say I saw the Queen.
This trip wasn’t any different, I found myself standing outside the palace again, telling my friend that the palace looks old and shabby and it needs some revamping, but yet fascinated with it.
Where I am going with this story is beyond me. However, after having watched a few episodes of the TV show I decided it was time to sort through my pictures from the trip. However, my computer decided to flunk on me, but here are some pictures I did take with my phone.
