London

The Eye

On the banks of the Thames River sits the London Eye, a mere 200 meters downstream from the House of Parliament.  The giant wheel measures 400 feet in diameter.

A complete rotation of the wheel takes 30 minutes, such a slow rate that each of the 32 capsules can load and unload 28 passengers while in motion.  The wheel never stops.

For a mere 25 Pounds, you can stand in line for the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom.

Thought for the Day:  Many are the wonders of the world, and none so wonderful as man.                                                                                                                            Sophocles
