Windsor Castle by michael ,  Jul 26, 2013

England's most royal castle, Windsor has housed Great Britain's kings and queens for 900 years.

The castle is still in use for few days in year as Quin residence. If you so unlucky to get there along with the Quin most of the attraction will be closed. I was lucky, the Quin was busy in London and the entire castle was at my disposal. 

The castle is heavily guarded even the Quin is not there.

I am not big fan of all "royal" stuff but there is not better way to see royal guard and ceremony of change of the guard. 

The castle itself with museums and churches makes it as a very interesting destination. Even struggling with jet-lag I enjoyed this.

By the old Moulmein Pagoda, lookin' eastward to the sea,
There's a Burma girl a-settin', and I know she thinks o' me;
For the wind is in the palm-trees, and the temple-bells they say:
"Come you back, you British soldier; come you back to Mandalay!" 
Come you back to Mandalay, Where the old Flotilla lay: 
Can't you 'ear their paddles chunkin' from Rangoon to Mandalay? 
On the road to Mandalay, 
Where the flyin'-fishes play, 
An' the dawn comes up like thunder outer China 'crost the Bay!
