Here's a pic from Bushy Park which is near Kingston Upon Thames, where we tried to enjoy a picnic lunch, however, we were interupted by this deer and two of his friends that wanted to taste our burek. I convinced him that grass tastes much better.
After the picnic in the park, we went to Hampton Court Palace and watched an operetta in the palace court. It was quite a different experince, very British.
That was all on Monday.
Today, (Tuesday) we went to Windsor castle and did the tour there. Very interesting history in the royal rooms and the chapel that's within the walls. Then we were hit with a UK special torrential rain storm. We ended the day with some turkish food at a little shop near our place.
Tomorrow I think the plan is to do some shopping in preparation for Friday's trip to Canary Islands. The hotel/resort we are staying at requires long pants be worn for dinner. And during my usual rushing style while packing back in Ottawa, I grabbed a pair of khakis and stuffed 'em in my bag. After unpacking the other day, I discovered they were actually Ferda's khakis. So I gotta buy a pair of pants, and maybe get some new shirts too, long and short sleeved.
Been watching a lot of the World Cup games, but I must say that the games haven't been fantastic. I've seen better play in the 13 year old kids I coached back in Vancouver. Some teams and players are so lazy, they just sit back and barely run. But I must give the brits their props, I've seen the St George's Cross everywhere: out windows, on cars and buses, even billboards. I would be very happy for England if they were to win.
