Tianjin Eye

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 in the world.   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!
