The Queen's Guard

by Wiwi
(Bremen, Germany)

I've been to England once and the first thing I recognized was that they drive their cars on the wrong side of the streets. While I was in London, I visited the Buckingham Palace.

The Queen's Guard in front of this Palace is famous for their large black hats, called bearskins. They are not allowed to move or to change the mood of their faces while they’re on guard.

So it is a popular sport to try to make them laugh or smile, but it’s very hard. We were able to make one of them smile, but sadly I cannot remember how.

But I enjoyed my time in England and one day I want to go back.
