Take me to the Eye

Today we got out the door early to make our way to the sites. First stop, Buckingham Palace.

The Guards playing the Star Wars Theme…go figure.

From there we walked to see Big Ben and The House of Parliament.

Our walk took us to the river Thames and the London Eye. It’s a beautiful place with tons and tons of people. What we all really needed was lunch so we chose an Indian place. The food was very very good.

After stuffing ourselves we waddled our way to the river. Our plan, catch a river boat to the Tower Bridge. Kaili was a trooper all day and finally fell asleep before getting on the boat.

Now it was time to make our way to the Olympic Village to meet Wags. It’s a privilege to be able to get in and see where the athletes eat, sleep and play during the games. He took us to his dorm and showed us all around. We ended the night eating dinner with him in the food hall. They had food from every country, quite an ordeal. I didn’t do so well on taking pictures, Kaili was getting antsy so my hands were tied up.

We finally got home around 9 pm. Were were all wiped out. Nighty night!
