The London Eye moves veeeerrry slowly. It takes about 45 minutes to make the complete circuit. I've only been on it once, but I was glued to the window the whole time, even if I am afraid of heights.
Never been on the London Eye, but saw it close up. I work at London Bridge, so we get a great view of the Gherkin and London Eye etc from the roof top of the building I work in. Tried to take pics one day but it was very bright out so the pics did not come out good at all
Yeah, it's often difficult to take outdoor shots here. It's either overcast and very bright or it's raining. Those poofy-cloud, mellow sunshine days are kind of rare.
Hah - just drop by here and find that you too are a patron of Ben Crouch.
We've probably been in the same room.
That was the first time I'd been to one of the Eerie pubs. Were you there last Friday?
Ah - no, I was there Sunday.
Well, I have to arrange a meet up with Rachel - perhaps we should all meet there - Tues eve?
She arrives the 27th, right? So Tuesday meaning May 31st?
I was holding off on replying to this until I knew whether or not I was going to need to make an emergency trip to the States. It turns out I am, so I won't be around then. Poop! Maybe another time?
I got my dates wrong - she's doen the following weekend...
After that Marco and I found a pretty good Mexican restaurant, where we drank margaritas
I want to believe that such a thing exists in London. Tell me,could they say fajitas properly?
All of the waitstaff were native Spanish speakers, so yes. The guacamole was the only questionable part of the whole affair, as they apologized to us, because it had been "toned down" for the English palate. The mole poblano was fantastic. And proper tortilla chips were involved, hooray! Plus, the waitstaff were extra-nice to us when Marco spoke Spanish to them.
