Trip to London, UK - Day 1 (3)


After the lunch, we came back to the river to take a ride on London Eye.

In the ticket booth was a fish tank in the shape of London Eye capsule.

There were less people than I expected waiting in the line.  We didn't have to wait at all.

Among 32 capsules, only one capsule is painted in red, and I was hoping to get into this red one - and I did!!  The difference is only the color, but I felt lucky!

From the capsule, we enjoyed the 360° view of London.


Here is the top of the wheel.  It was quite high.  It took us around 15 min to reach the top.

Then we walked along the river and found the Christmas market.

There seemed to be many German shops - this shop was selling variety of sausages.  They looked delicious, but we just had lunch and did not taste any.

I found a churros booth.  The lady at the booth game me a small piece of sampling.  It was actually quite good, so I ordered one cup although, as I said, we just had lunch and were totally stuffed...  I was amazed by my own appetite...

We got the freshly fried churros, which came with the chocolate sauce.  The portion was much bigger than I though (but we finished them all!).

We also found a booth selling warm wine (mulled wine), and ordered a cup.

It was warm, spicy (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc) and good.  I think it is perfect in winter.  At this point, we were exhausted as we hadn't slept since the day before.  So we decided to go back to the hotel and take a rest until dinner.  I'll report the dinner later~.
