WESTminster should be renamed (Alex)

by on June 23, 2015

Today, we went to Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral. First, we went to Buckingham Palace to see the Changing of the Guards ceremony, but it did not happen as there was too much rain. Then we took the underground over to Westminster Abbey (Parliament Sq.). Westminster Abbey was cool, but was a really long tour. They designed it to go a certain route, which had everone else going on it too. We saw many graves (including many kings, Einstein, and more) and saw the beautiful architecture of the church. Next, we  headed over to St. Paul’s Cathedral. The dome was really impressive, especially that there were 2 domes, and one made it easy to see the paintings while the outer one made the church look big in the London skyline. Rachel and mom and I did walk to the top, which was really hard, but good excercise. I think it was approximately 400 steps one way, but I am not completely sure. I asked, and  if someone has a heart attack on the top of the building, the NHS (National Health Service which is a mixture of medical insurance and hospitals) sends someone up the stairs, as opposed to a helicopter. I really liked the architecture in both buildings. 

Lastly, we saw Wicked, which was really good. The person playing Elphaba was an understudy, but was really good. Granted, the Victoria Underground and National Rail station was a complete mess due to construction, but we got home (at midnight). This is what we did today.
