Hello everybody. In this video we continue exploring London. First thing in the morning we go to Buckingham Palace to see the Changing of the Guard Ceremony. Then we visit the marvelous British Museum, which houses ancient Egyptian and Greek relics, among other things. We go back to the Tower Bridge, but this time we pay to get the Tower Bridge Experience, in which we are able to go up to the catwalk and walk on the glass floor. We also get a chance to see the original steam engine that used to power the bascule bridge. We also follow in The Beatles’ footsteps and make our pilgrimage to the famous Abbey Road crosswalk. We end the night at Piccadilly Circus. On the following day we take an excursion to the Windsor Castle, Bath, and Stonehenge, but I’ll show you that on the next video. On our last night in London we eat at Sheba, and Indian restaurant in the famous Brick Lane.
It was four years ago, almost exactly to the date, that my musician and travel blogger personas collided in one spot. I had just rented a Class C motor home to embark in one of our great adventures, and I decided to pass by Habana Mia, one of the places where I was performing at the time. One of my signature songs was a tune called “La Guagua” (the bus). My showing up at the night club with a “guagua” (bus) was unintentionally a great publicity stunt. The owner took several pictures and posted them on Facebook and my friend Arlene photoshopped a fictitious web address on the picture. From that day on, for a while I became associated with that song “La Guagua” and it is still one of my most requested songs. laguaguaderobert.com now redirects back here, to my travel blog.
The day after this photo was taken we departed towards Sandusky, Ohio aboard that rental motor home, and after that got the RVing bug and the rest is history. Happy Throw Back Thursday and see you on the road!
Watch the video of our Road Trip by RV next.
The following is a video of me singing “La Guagua”
