London, England

We finished our trip with 4 days in London, arriving October 30th and flying home on November 3rd.  It is nice to be home, but looking forward to going back to continue our travels.

City of London

Leadenhall Market

The "Walkie Talkie" building

Interesting office building in the South Bank area. London is full of modern office buildings.

City Hall located along Queens Walk, a very scenic walk along the Thames.

The Shard

Another interesting office building

Tower cranes on a building site in downtown London. There was construction every direction you looked.
