Our Busy Day in London!

We had a great day in London yesterday!  Eric dropped us off at the underground (subway) at 10:00 and it took about 45min to get to the city.  We met our friend Jon and started our day with the original London double decker bus tour.  We saw most of the major tourist spots such as Big Ben, Tower bridge, Buckingham Palace, Westminister Abbey and much more. It was quite cold out, not the kind of freezing cold we get in Canada but a damp cold that  chilled you to the bone.  We still had to sit on the top of the bus to get the full experience, it was freezing! I forgot to mention the bus tour was 2 hrs long.

We then went to The Rock and Sole Place for fish and chips (yes again!).  It was delicious!

We headed over to the London Eye which is a large ferris wheel with breath taking views of the city.  It took us 1/2 hr to go around, it was amazing!

We walked around the city some more before heading to Brick Lane for some authentic Indian curry, the national dish of England.  Brick Lane is a street with nothing but curry houses and the shop owners negotiate with you to get you in to the restaurant.  It’s quite the experience and we had a great dinner for a very reasonable price!

It was a great day and we were tired with the jet lag kicking in full force.  Thanks Jon for spending the day with us and showing us around!
