The National Gallery in Trafalgar Square
I first went to Westminster Abbey and checked out the place. It was enormous and very impressive. I have taken a glimpse of the inside but that was it. I couldn't remember if you had to buy an expensive ticket to get in or that it wasn't really open for the public. I then went to see Big Ben again but as I got closer I noticed that the London Eye was finally open (it was closed for maintenance a few days ago). I was really excited so I crossed the bridge and even almost got hit by a car and a bus as I crossed another street. I couldn't see the color of the traffic light if it was green or red. Oh thank God I'm still alive. Imagine if I got killed and nobody knows me there (except for a few people who I just met)?? hehe..

Anyway, after lining up for almost half an hour to buy the ticket, I finally experienced the feeling of being up there in the Millenium Wheel. It wasn't really scary at all since it was moving so slow that you won't even feel it. And the view? Amazing. The 14 pounds I paid for the ticket was all worth the ride though I was hoping I was with someone to share that moment with.

After that I went to the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. I went inside and had fun looking at the artworks that I saw there. And then I had some rest outside in front of the National Gallery and enjoyed the view of Trafalgar Square and also Big Ben not so far away. After killing some time I went to my last stop for the day which was Picadilly Circus.
