细雨泰晤·环游世界200天 伦敦【中英】 London (CHN&ENG)

Above: London City Hall London Bridge is actually not the big bridge some might think. It is actually the oldest and the most featureless bridge out there. It was a flat bridge with a few lamp posts, and the bridge what most people think is London Bridge is actually named the Tower Bridge. I slowly made my way east, crisscrossing among the Tuesday crowd. When I found myself by the waterfront again, I saw a giant WWI style warship docked in the middle of the Thames River: HMS Belfast. It was a world-class battleship back in her heyday. Well, it looked like it was more fixated at the middle of the river than docked, as during my entire visit, the battleship did not move one single bit, not even bobbing up and down with the waves. I rushed in trying to avoid the pouring sky water misery, and I was in this historic and original piece of antique of immense importance. There happened to be a Japanese modern battleship visiting and it was docked right next to HMS Belfast. It was open for visit too! A free tour on a modern light cruiser? HELL YEAH LETS GO;The jewels were probably the best thing I have ever seen in my life. When diamonds get to a certain size, and are cut so brilliantly into different angles, they become like a little sun, a power source of some kind. The ones mounted on those crowns and staffs were not bright, they were radiant. Add in the largest ruby gem, sapphire crystals, and a touch of emerald sparkling green, all ingrained on top of a gold-and-silver frame, you got yourself the most beautiful plaything in the world. I would love to see a movie of how some thieves try to steal them, fulfilling my wettest dream. After drooling over the ground for a while, I explored the central tower of the compound, which was filled with the history of this place. I have briefly explained it in the paragraphs before, so I will not waste time here. I exited the compound, and walked down Thames aimlessly. After a quick dinner/lunch, I returned back to my hostel, and talked with Georgia and Daniel more. We decided to go explore a different part of the town the next day, which would wrap up our stay in the capital of the Empire.
