The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London.
I really enjoyed the ride.
On my last visit to London I went to the Buckingham Palace. This year our Mexican president made an official visit to the State. He has been much criticized for his performance at Office, being held responsible for 43 missing students and some other crimes against humanity. Still a warm reception, some say, because of our telecommunication and oil concessions. Of Course, that is the fine print.
On a brighter side, Mexico and the U.K. have a great relationship, not to mention their secret war with Mexico when they wanted to abduct mexican revolutionary General Zapata. (interesting? try The Secret War in Mexico: Europe, the United States and the Mexican Revolution, by Friedrich Katz Austrian-born anthropologist and historian specialized in 19th and 20th century history of Latin America; particularly, in the Mexican Revolution)
Where was I? ok, back to the topic. The Buckingham Palace is a must when visiting London. It is my understanding that it is not always open to the public, so check in advance. I am fond of londoners, they have been very kind and some either spent time explaining me directions.
