I took a ton of pictures while we were there, and I think I am beginning to understand my dads tendency to whip out the slide projector at the drop of the hat and share his photos with everyone. There was a Christmas Fair that started at the base of the London Eye (that giant Ferris Wheel across the river from Big Ben which was featured in the very first episode of the new series of Doctor Who in 2005) and ran on for a number of blocks along the Thames. One of the things they had was a booth full of Gingerbread Houses, some of which were quite complex. At the far end of the fair there was a old world intricately decorated carousel, the blue thing you can see above and behind it is the Eye in its lights.
