London Calling – Big Ben and the Parliament Building


Well, pardon the interruption, but I’ve been too busy globetrotting the last few days to post about, well… globetrotting.  Now I’m back in Colorado for the time being, and I’ll show you around here before too long.

But first, the next and final installment from London; the stroll along the Thames comes to it’s conclusion.  It was a pretty day wandering about the city, but unfortunately the Underground doesn’t run all night, and neither do camera batteries.  So I wandered my way from the London Bridge towards Big Ben to catch my ride home.  Have a look.

The London Eye. One big-ass ferris wheel. Would have loved to take a ride, but it costs a fortune.

And there’s Big Ben

Weird, that building was red last picture…

And there’s the Parliament building, just behind that there bus.

And more Big Ben. Not as big as the name would indicate, but still iconic as hell.

Like this one. Old man waiting for something just outside an Underground station.

“Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.”

Strolling across a pedestrian bridge to catch the last train back to my hotel…

That wraps up the pictures from London.  We’ll see some pictures from the English countryside before too long.  And then it’s of it’s Prague.

Don’t be a stranger.
