Hyde Park, London

In adjusting to the time zones between London and Australia, we took very early morning walks in Hyde Park before breakfast and were very pleasantly surprised to see how many people bundled up in the chill to jog or walk their dogs through the historic park.

Hyde Park is huge and far outshadows the Hyde Park in Sydney. It houses the Serpentine, which is a lake. A lake! And the Hyde Park Barracks for the Horse Guards and their horses.

Oh, and did I mention squirrels? No? Yes, squirrels. Hopefully they’re nothing like the killer squirrels in Russia.
