London Eye and Jubilee Gardens

Above us, the London Eye levitates like an optical illusion 439 feet over surrounding Jubilee Gardens. The British-Airways-built structure is the tallest observation wheel in the world. It differs from a Ferris wheel because it revolves very slowly, only once every half hour allowing tourists a 25-mile view in all directions. I am frittering away time waiting for the start of my amphibious excursion of the streets and waterways of the British capital aboard London Duck Tours.
