London Eye / Mexican Eye

This post has two purposes:

The first one is show you Puebla’s Wheel of Fortune (Puebla is a state in Mexico) and secondly to ask you for tips about do’s/don’ts when traveling to London since I will be there on September and I want to do all I can during my stay.

Even though Puebla’s  Wheel of Fortune is not at all like the London Eye  (or the Millennium Wheel, I have done my research 😉 ) it has a Guinness world record, which I will tell you a the end of this post…

Here a photo of the London Eye (from Wikipedia): Hight :135 meters, Diameter: 120 meters, Cost 70 million pounds.



Now a photo of Puebla’s Wheel of Fortune: Hight: 80 meters, Cost 200 million pesos that come to 12 million pounds.

According to Guinness World Records this is the wheel of larger diameter (sure?) that can be itinerant, it can be removed, disassembled and reassembled at another place.. (yes!)

  1. I bet it would be quite the feat to break down and reassemble that wheel! Very cool pics.

    I have a friend from England; I will ping him and see if he can share some tips with you.
