Afternoon Tea was enjoyed in the Cellarium of Westminster Abbey. More on that in tomorrow's post. Following tea, we headed back across the Thames towards the London Eye, the country's Millennium project.
While crossing the bridge, Susanna spotted this graffiti by global artist Hogre. It's a great depiction of these British tourist destinations complete with the hoards of people that gather here everyday. Walking across the bridge in the morning was pleasant with a minimal number of people, by late afternoon/early evening the sidewalk was solid with multi-lingual visitors, tourists with selfie sticks oblivious to the crowds, and buskers (street performers) trying to hustle a buck. There were some playing the shell game (at 40 pounds a pop) and others playing the bag pipes with an open case for coins.
