A day of meetings. An adjusted tour and... we saw The Queen. No biggie :)
we began the day at a location near the London Eye because today was the opening of the government so.... imagine the state of the union back home. Also it was interesting to see the security protocols for such an event. Similar to what they do for the parade. We were really put at ease with all that has been made of security and news reporting back home. The city continues to prove how you feel as though the motto of the parade is saftey and security first. After our tour (and check out the CPPHS Bands Facebook page for a glimpse of the queen! We have friends that lived here for 17 years and never saw her , we were in the country 24 hours and saw her being driven back to the palace with prince Charles. The rest of the day included meetings about logistics, media and security as well as our ittinerary being more solidified as we move closer to departure. We are planning on taking a couple of audio tours and doing a tour for you when we get home with pictures and videos. We will also go through the parade route and what it's like to get from our hotel to the area where we will be using the ATM to get your spending cash out. Lots to do! Good night for now!
