London Eye

The last time I toured United Kingdom and Ireland, the London Eye (the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe) was not even in the drawing board. It has since become the most famous tourist attraction in the UK since it was built. When my wife and I completed our Mediterranean cruise in 2004, we decided to stay a few more days in London to see and experience the Eye and to revisit old haunts in the city.
