My one day in London, overall was alright. In the morning, J and I took one of those double decker tour buses. We cruised around for a while, then looked at sovenir shops. We went to Buckhingham Palace too. It looked different than I imagined. Walked down to Westminister Abbey. Just saw it from the outside, looked impressive. Big Ben was nearby. I know it's famous but it didnt amaze me. Across the river Thames, we took the London Eye ferris wheel. It was put there at the turn of the millenium. Got some good views of London. Even got a 4D promo film for it. Afterwards, we took a river cuise to London Bridge. The driver was a funny guy! Went to the Tower of London, it looks so medieval. Not my idea of fun but it was ok to see a bit of history. Soon after, I went on a Jack the Ripper walking tour. We saw the spots Jack the Ripper killed at. I wonder if I made the right choice, coz I wanted to spend the evening cruising on the tour bus. It actually finished going and instead, I had to walk in the rain! Damn London haha. Freezing and wet. At night, all the Contiki travelers got together to sign-in to our tour. I was shocked, we have 50 people on my tour! Aaaah too many, but maybe this way we can find people we click with.
