The sidewalks are these paved blocks.  It will be kind hard on my luggage wheels walking from my hotel to Waterloo Station in a couple of days.  Also, being a London pedestrian can kill you, if you think you can safely cross the street, if you don't see traffic coming from your left.  They drive on the other side of the road, so you have to train your self to look right first.  This warning is painted on the sidewalks near busy intersections.

I attempted to get the wheel centered in this picture.  It would have been nice to see the sun light in the picture.

"Houses of Parliament" and "Big Ben"

A tourist asked me if  I would use his camera to take a picture of him posing at this location.  I did.  It was really one of those expensive Nikon cameras.  He offered to take this one of me with my el-cheapo camera.

This is where I purchased the ticket to ride the "London Eye" or "Millennium Wheel".

Waiting in line to board, I got this close up view of a capsule.

The entrance turn styles.

  An empty capsule and "Big Ben".  I guess they space their loading.

My first picture after boarding the capsule.
