In the coming month, I’d like to pay a visit to London with my family, and tour along the River Thames where there are lots to see, the famous Buckingham Palace and Big Ben, for example.
Ever since I fell in love with English, I was hopeful to see the country where the language originates and the city where live the royalty. The historical buildings and the unique view there will definitely impress us.
During the one-week journey, though we could not go into the Buckingham Palace for a visit, for it’s said it’s open to the public from July to September, we will surely make it watch the wonderful Ceremony of Changing Guard. Then we will visit Westminster Hall to appreciate St. Stephen’s Porch and grand hall, and we expect to have a chance to go up to the Campanile Bell, to have a look of the whole city.
At night, we prefer to take the well-known London Eye and enjoy the special view over the River Thames. Of course, we will tour around the landmark of England, the Big Ben, which I got to know, at first, from the article in New Concept English, which said it’s renowned the world over for its accuracy, which is always to be within one second, and it’s connected to the microphones of BBC.
We will wait for its striking, which is said can be heard for miles around. It’s a pity that foreign tourists can no longer be allowed to enter the clock building, but I have searched the internet and enjoy the online tour of it. I am looking forward to going to appreciate the
clock in person in the future. I could not wait for the trip to London.

Question: If somebody got lost while exploring or traveling in a remote part of the world, or if they needed some other type of help, who should pay for this help?
