Queens in the Castle

Sometimes you're in the right place at the right time, and you don't even know it. During our Europe trip, we saw the changing of the guard, which was very formal, very British. Our tour guide informed us that the queen was in the castle that day (indicated by a flag raised over the palace) because they were hosting Nelson Mandela on his 90th birthday. "Neat," I thought. Well, last night I watched the concert for Nelson Mandela, which occurred while I was in London, and Queen (the band) played. Queen was the first concert I ever saw, with Freddie Mercury in all his glory. It would have been awesome to see them in London, but without Freddie it's not the same. But it sure looked like a good time!
