Photos of my stay in London

And finally after settling down back in my sweet home with the AK and the family, and the doggies…
yeup, i am super glad to be back home. its superly hot though.
this is the view i had from the hotel room i stayed for 10 days. Below righty hand is a wall, an old wall of years years old, that trail Jack the ripper took or probably ripped his victims here.

the room

They had the trail guide at 730pm and most of the nights, while in the room resting, i could hear the group tour repeating repeating the sequence of Jack the ripper!
this is the top view of Willis building showing (i should think) Swiss Re (easter Egg).
There’s about 2 easter egg building in London., i might think its this one!

the tower of London I went viewing for the 1st day! IT WAS large and numerous steps ,

tiny steps that twirled up and up till my feet ached badly!

Inside the Tower!




the small tiny stair way leading to the dungeons

Tower bridge

apparantly, was encarved by the prisoners that were held here during those times


armours



this is the interior of the office i worked in London


this is the St paul Cathedral,. i walked from the hotel i stayed in all the way

to this piece of antique.

Took me about half an hour to reach, with the help of my map-py.

it was very grand, antique and awesome.


exterior or St paul, to get in, i paid 10pounds

secertly took a snap interior! this building is 300years old



overlook inside the dungeon!

because we weren’t allowed to snap pictures, else ..

i climbed towards the dome top and i wished i didn’t then .

it was a twirl again, worst than the London tower and it never seemed to end.

i was sore, my feet and legs were sore by the time i reached the dome.

height phobia, it was scary! then had to walk my way down. Nearly fainted!

after the climb, had my body seated well outside at the St paul cafe.

cooling!

my own snap shot

talking to the AK over the phone then spotted this group of well

dressed entering to the ST Paul Cathedral,by the back door… hemmm

that the dome that i reached!

now i can’t remember what bridge this was!



i walked walked to an art gallery, then to this Shakespeare’s theater!

i didn’t get to watch one show, because i was too lost to go about with it!

then i went to borough Market! Had a wine PUNCH! 3.99pounds which i regreted

cause i had to look for the toilet in like the next half an hour!
