I’m not big on the flashy tourist attractions in London. They are generally overcrowded, overrated and overpriced. Until recently, I considered the London Eye to be just that, but an opportunity to experience a private pod for free [filled with champagne] presented itself and well, mama didn’t raise no fool. The weather turned out to be typically British, howling wind coupled with horizontal rain so that there was never any question that we were overlooking London. I travelled lightly (i.e. sans camera) so all we have are a few crappy phone pictures but they honestly don’t do the view any justice. Would I pay the £20 to experience it again? Probably not but I am so glad that I got to see it… for free!
Obligatory couple shot.
