Tianjin holds one of the world’s tallest Ferris wheels, the Tianjin Eye. This is another touristy attraction that I have not visited until this summer, and I don’t even have distance as an excuse this time. I went with my grandparents and cousin and took a boat ride down the HaiHe river that runs through Tianjin. Then we walked over to the Tianjin Eye, which is, notably, one of the only Ferris wheels that straddles water. A whole rotation on the Eye takes 30 minutes. It was a very pleasurable ride; there was air conditioning and it could hold our whole party of eight. The view at the top of the Eye was breathtaking, though a bit scary! I am glad I had the opportunity to go, and I had a great time talking and laughing with my grandparents and cousin!
