What does Islam, The Beatles, and Santa Claus have in common?

..... I have no idea. Probably nothing. Except that they all figured into my day today.

First stop of the day:
The Mosque

We got to tour an Islamic mosque! But if you want to go inside one, you can't show your hair, long sleeves are mandatory, and no tight clothes... PROBLEM.
Pants I brought to London: skinny jeans, jeggings, and leggings... awesome.
So I wore a long coat and hoped for the best :)

Second stop of the day:
Do I even need to say anything more?

Oh, except that it is an actual road that is still used... a lot... so we couldn't get the greatest picture haha.

Third Stop:
Hyde Park Winter Wonderland!

It is AWESOME! It is a full on carnival with a ferris wheel and other rides, vendors selling amazing pastries and cadbury hot chocolate, and booths full of homemade crafts!

Word to the wise: don't sample the apple cider, on account of there being alcohol in cider over here. (We learned this the hard way... haha)
