Weekend in London

Last weekend Michael was coming and since it was his birthday we took a day off to London. The visit of the London Tower took most of our time. Only few remains from its foundation in 1078 by William the Conqueror. The White Tower is where the original tower was built and the Norman main hall is accesible for visitiors with reconstructed wooden beams which then carried the roof:

Here is a view of London Bridge from the Tower:

And now I'm pretty sure that the end of the monarchy is coming. They have to keep the ravens in a cage to keep them from leaving the Tower. Oh oh...

We then had a ride (or rather flight, after all it's sponsored by British Airways) on the London Eye.

After endless queuing you will be truly rewarded by a spectacular view over London and it's main sights like Westminster, St. Paul ...
