By this time our minds were more than overloaded by monuments and history so we decided to go to the Parliament Building and watch the unusual changing of the guard. Kind of silly we thought, but still entertaining. Lastly we walked and had a look at the original Olympic Stadium????. The next day we went to the airport at 4am to catch our flight ...
