Our First Evening in London

After the Tower of London, we went to take a ride on the London Eye. The London Eye is the most sought out tourist attraction in the world. You can see for 25 miles from the top! Many think it is a ferris wheel, but it's not. There are 3 main differences: 1) it has enclosed carts, where a ferris wheels carts are open-airred. 2) A-framed and 3) Cabins are on the exterior of the structure, where a ferris wheels carts hang in the structure. (I found this interesting..don't make fun of me!) The views from the top were awesome! You could see Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Houses of Parliament, and much more! After the London Eye, there was a 4-D video on it. I had no idea how many movies used the London Eye in particular scenes! It was great!

After our ride, we had dinner and attended a show in the West End of London (like NYC's Broadway)! We saw WICKED! It was a great show!

Now it's off to bed to prepare for a busy day as a London spy! We're so excited!
