Western Europe Discovery #3: Windsor Castle and Cheers from London!

Hello from London! Our Italy participants have now joined forces with 8 new participants. Yesterday we picked up the new crew from the airport and went straight to Windsor Castle where the Queen sometimes spends her weekends.

We took photos with the guards and tried extremely hard to get them to laugh but they were impressive! Next we bussed back to the hotel for our new friends to check in and relax and worked our way into some ice breakers in the hotel. Everyone is getting along great and enjoying a buffet dinner and an early bed time so we could prepare for the long day ahead on Thursday.

Thursday, we started the day in central London, where we went to the Buckingham Palace for the changing of the guards. After that, we went to Big Ben and Westminster Abbey where we had a small photo op. For lunch, we were given money and a lot of time to shop on Oxford Street. Finally to end the night, we had a quick dinner, went on the London Eye, saw a 4D movie about the London Eye, and took pictures at platform 9 3/4 from the famous series Harry Potter.

We are so excited for the day ahead of us Friday where we will help London’s community, visit Shakespeare’s famous globe theatre, and enjoy a nice Shabbat.
