Intensity IV: A microphone for the Queen (167)
04/05/2015, London, United Kingdom 🇬🇧
This is another episode of the trip to London, Paris and Milan that I made in 2015. Here are the previous stories:

Today’s drawing seems a bit funny to me. I was trying to portray the ridiculous hat of the famous Royal Guard. Don’t you think the guards look like a microphone in the distance? I think so… otherwise I would never have drawn a picture of the Queen’s guards (what for?).
Anyway, more than “curiosities” about these guards, I remember something more special from that day: I was in the crowd with my parents, waiting for the changing of the guards (things we do as a family and we never do alone!) and suddenly I met a girl who was staring at me…
She was a few metres away, “on the other side” of the street. She smiled and I blushed, but I couldn’t help looking at her. I plucked up my courage, and when I tried to cross the street I was pushed back by the crowd: the changing of the guards had started. I could no longer see her or find her…
But tell me dear reader…
Do you remember any love story that wasn’t even a story?
Do you think the guards dress up as giant microphones for (the) Queen?
Good night 🥁💂🏻
