Wednesday, June 6, 2018:  This is how you get around in London, England. 
The British pound is equal to about $1.31.  It varies from day to day. 
The coins are Pence, something like a penny.  They come in 1, 5, 10, 20, and 50.  
An Oyster card is for underground transportation in tubes (subways).
A London Pass gets you into many museums and on some transportation.  Very handy to have.
To take a tube, you need to head underground. 
 Or, you can take a boat down the River Thames.  Mark and Paula did that on this day in London.
The captain was a well-seasoned boat master.  He looks nothing like the captain of the Titanic.
The boat headed down the Thames and under the famous Tower Bridge with people waving.  More on that later.
(l-r) They went past the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, which was covered by scaffolding for a renovation project.
Plenty of tourists.  Almost all wanted their photo taken.
There are some high-speed rubber boats for thrill seekers.
The river has homes and businesses along both sides, with lots of boat traffic in the middle.
Drop anchor, let's see what this is all about!  That looks like the Cutty Sark.  We must be in Greenwich, England!

Quote of the day:    Stay tuned to the next exciting episode.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
