Picadilly Circus by night.

This week, I managed to be in the UK for a special wedding which I’ll update about soon enough.

Its always good to go home to see the sights of the UK, as it really does boast some of the most eye catching monuments the world has to offer.  Above obviously Tower Bridge.  Well.  Not obviously as once upon a time, Americans bought London Bridge thinking they had bought Tower Bridge, but didn’t double check which one it was.

A good 10 years ago, we did a rail down here and it was one of the best rails we ever did.  Great spot right by Tower Bridge.

Right next to it is of course the Tower of London.

Right now they have a memorial for the outbreak of the first world war consisting of Thousands of thousands of poppies.
