Happy New Year!

We went to watch the fireworks at the London Eye. There was a real party atmosphere before the countdown begun - people drinking and dancing the night away. Party music supplied the BBC.

And the fireworks were great (never mind the back of people's heads that are always in all my photos)!

But there was a lot of pushing and shoving to get out into the streets as there were some crowd control measures by the police. A lot of dodging broken glasses and people's dinners on the streets. And quickly running away when a few people start breaking into fights. Saw blood on the streets in Tottenham Court Road. More pushing and shoving to get into Holborn station (we walked from Embankment to Holborn to find an open tube station). A few more drunken people swaying along the streets on the way home.
