London and Cyprus

Last month I got to go to London and Cyprus. So here are a few highlights and photos from the trip. First we went to London and were able to see a few of the typical touristy spots. We had to chase down this guard after he was relieved from his post. He was walking so fast and it was obvious that he did not want to stop for photos but hey my mom rellly wanted a photo so we ran him down :) (poor guy) The phone booths might look cute but they are filled with porn and numbers you can call for more fun:) We took a tour of the queen palace and I thought it was so weird that not one word was spoken about princess Dianna. (We asked our taxi driver why not and he said the general thought of the people there is that she was killed by the Queen and so that is why they dont mention her at all. Weird. Sounds like something out of an old fairytale book or something (mot real life) After 3 days we traveled to Cyprus and this is where we stayed. Just teasing that was next door. Here are the cute little little boys we came to see. I think they are my best buds now. This is the local market where you could see people actually hacking away at the bloody meat in the back moving their knives from one bloody animal carcass to the next oh and a box of fish in a crate in case you have a hankering for that. My favorite part about Cyprus is explained in this green sign. They drive on the other side of the road and sit on the wrong side of the car so my sister did most of the driving. My mom and I attempted a few times and I don't think that I have ever laughed so hard in my life. My dad was so funny. As walked around the ruins he had his nose in his Iphone. This is how he spent most of his time, trying to find out how to get from here to there for us so we wouldnt get lost and playing phone games. :) My favorite thing we did in Cyprus was boogie boarding in the Mediterranean. We visited a few ruins and climbed a ton of stairs. That is my sister Celest defacing a historical sight. Just teasing!!! There was no info at a few of the sites we went to so we decided this particular ruin was a urinal and she is demonstrating. All and all it was fun but I missed my family at home. Thanks to everyone who helped me with Leiden.
