London Tower, Tower Bridge and more

Don’t know about you, but this is the first time I’ve ever been on an empty subway train:

We also went into the Tower Bridge. Didn’t know you could do that.

Those two crosspieces over the top are walking bridges. Midway through there are two wide glass panes that you can peer down onto the bridge and the water below. You should see the pictures I took for everyone else from that vantage point.

Our tour also gave us a view of some of the machinery that raises and lowers the bridge:

One more shot of the bridge, as we passed underneath it on a boat cruise:

The London Eye, also from the Thames:

The Palace of Westminster, from the Thames:

Chocolates from the place where we had dinner tonight. Good Indian, bad grammar:

We saw Wicked tonight. This is the curtain:

And the curtain call:

Good show.
