July 27 - Last day in London town
Today is our final day in London. I decided to spend my last day along the South bank of the Thames. I began my day by visiting the London Film Museum. I am doing a research paper o the preservation of Doctor Who ephemera and artifacts. The LFM has a small Doctor Who exhibit in the science fiction room. While I thought the placement between two different types of aliens was a bit off, it was original pieces from the set of a film.
After visiting the film museum, I headed over to buy tickets for the London Eye. I told myself I was going to go up and I did. As I was buying tickets, I also bought a ticket for The Aquarium. I thought it would be relaxing to watch the fish and rays and sharks swimming around. Little did I know that they herd people in and through and I think I got bumped into by no less than half a dozen strollers of varying sizes. I did enjoy the penguin exhibit. They have a dozen Gentoo penguins.
I went back to the dorms to chill for a few hours then met up with a friend for dinner. We ate in Gabriel's Wharf and had a nice time. It started to rain after dinner so I went back to get my umbrella. It had been quite warm and sunny just a few hours earlier. I headed over to the London Eye to get in line.
The London Eye had a massively long line but it moved fairly quickly. It rained the entire time. I still managed to take some decent pictures from the Eye. I got a little woozy at the top but it truly is a beautiful site to behold. I know it would have been even better had it not been raining.
Overall, I had a really nice last day here in London.
That is all for now...
