PKOV: Much Ado about London and Rome - Day 2

The day started with my cousin and I finding this right outside Earl's Court station:

As far as I was concerned, that was it, I could go home happy. 

Of course that wasn't the case, so I continued my adventure by going to Buckingham Palace and seeing the State Rooms. We didn't know the tickets were timed, so we decided to go to the British Museum and kill time there before our scheduled tour at the Palace.

The Rosetta Stone. Pretty much the reason why I wanted to go the museum in the first place.

After eating at a pub on the road to the Palace, we headed over. It started to rain pretty hard while waiting, but we eventually headed in. Damn, the weather in London is as fickle as it is in Japan! Anyhoo, the State Rooms was...amazing. Everything you imagine of royalty and those big fancy rooms? Yeah, that's what the rooms look like. I can't even imagine living in a place like that. And the crazy thing is we were only looking at just a *portion* of the state rooms. I have to say while walking around I kept imagining myself as a princess or something and prancing around in a princess-y dress. DON'T JUDGE ME!

Afterwards we ended up walking past Hyde Park. Since we were sick and had a pretty full day we called it an early night and watched some British TV.

I shall leave you with my fav (one of them anyway) things in the world: FOOD.

Vegetarian Falafel Burger @ Gourmet Burger Kitchen. I thought it would just be a normal dish, but alas it was still a burger. REALLY good though.
