Finally, I booked tickets to visit the London Eye and it turned out to be a rainy day. Oh well, I guess at least its another check off the tourist list of things to do here in London. The London Eye was built for the new millennium and was only supposed to be up for a year. It is 135 meters (443 ft) and is the largest Ferris wheel in Europe. Plus, it is pretty expensive for a 30 minute ride around a Ferris wheel, but with a pretty amazing view. It’s a shame it wasn’t a better day for photographs.
