Back on October 8th, I got up & I ate breakfast at the Grantly Hotel where I stayed while I was in Central London. After I ate, I walked over to the Underground at Shepherd's Bush. I took the Central Line train from there to Oxford Circus then I changed to the Piccadilly Line & I got off the first stop which was Piccadilly Circus. I went outside & I looked around the area which was a busy public space in the heart of London. It reminded me of Times Square here in NYC. There were theaters, shops & other forms of entertainment there. After getting a taste of the vicinity, I continued walking. In the process, I passed by Leicester Square which is known as the West End. They also have places of entertainment there as well. After I passed through that, I came to the Covent Garden which is another district on the eastern fringes of the West End. It's also where the Royal Opera House is located. I came across it as I was wandering around the nearby streets. I then proceeded to walk across the Waterloo Bridge which goes over the River Thames. The view was amazing & breathtaking as I looked around in all different directions. I was in the midst of the Jubilee Walkway which is an official walking route of London. I kept walking across the bridge with my mouth & eyes wide open. I then saw a sign that directed me towards the London Eye. I followed the signs & I got to the pier. There were plenty of people around waiting to take a ride on the big ferris wheel. Unfortunately I didn't have time to do so. I took in the beautiful view of it though. After relaxing for a short time & I walked until I got to the Westminster Bridge which I walked across. By doing so, I saw Big Ben in the distance.
