Day 15 - London, part 2

Today was a sad day because session 2 had to leave session 1 behind in Glasgow. We had said our goodbyes last night and wished them all a safe trip home. They arrived safely in the states while session 2 took the long journey all the way to London where they will spend the next four days. The bus ride was a great chance for most of the group to catch up on some much needed sleep to be energized for the big city that was ahead of us. After a few stops for petrol and food, we had arrived in London!

We were welcomed to a very nice bed and breakfast and after dropping off our luggage and then began touring the big city. We were quickly introduced to the tube and had a pretty successful first experience with it. We made our way to Piccadilly Circus to see a hot spot in the city. That is where all the movie premieres, musicals, and various other attractions take place. From there, we walked around and found Big Ben, the Parliament building, Westminster Abbey, the National Gallery, and many other places.

The next main attraction we went to was the London Eye. It is the tallest ferris wheel in the world, and we took in beautiful views of London! The skies were clear, and we could see forever when we were at the top of it. 

We all enjoyed seeing the beautiful city of London at night! As we made our way back, we walked through Chinatown and rested up for our next days in the wonderful city.
