Sunday, June 3, 2018:   Mark and Paula stopped in at Fuller's Ale & Pie for lunch.  A taste of Britain.
 
An item they are known for is Pie and Mash.  It is three ales with three meat pies and mash (potatoes).
 
Then it was off on an open-top city tour bus. 
 
Big Ben was under renovation, but still chimed.
 
The London Eye, as seen from Westminster Bridge over the River Thames.  More on that later.
 
Street names change frequently.  A street may have three names as you go along.  Must be very confusing for taxi drivers.
Lots of construction in London.  With limited real estate, they  tear down buildings to put up taller ones.
 
Plenty to see an lots of foot traffic.
 
The theatre district was on the route.
 
Now we've got troubles...the bus driver attempted to go through a narrow street and couldn't make a turn at the end. 
He had to back up the huge bus about a block, much to the chagrin of bystanders.  No easy task.

 
It took about 20 minutes before backing into a very busy street.  But then, all London street are busy.
 
Time for a refreshment after that experience.  You don't see food trucks like that in the U.S.

Quote of the day:    London is an interesting place.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
