The pound to dollar conversion rate is killing us

Sooo today there was a Skyride Bike tour through London and Megan and I decided we wanted to rent bikes and do it...but apparently renting bikes in London is not very accessible. So unfortunately, we just watched thousands of people bike through closed off streets/ Somewhat soul-crushing not to be a part of it, but it was still a cool spectacle to see.
We walked around Trafagar Square for a bit and then over the Westminster bridge to check out the London Eye. We then walked and saw Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and through Green Park.
Please note the sign we saw after Megan sprawled herself all over the Canadian Memorial.
We stopped at the Wellington Arch because it was free today to walk to the top...it is one of the busiest traffic areas in all of London.
We then went to Hyde Park and had a little picnic in front of the rose gardens...
and rented a paddle boat and paddled through the Serpentine Pond
Funds are starting to run low here in London, so we opted to stop by the market and pick up something quick and cheap for dinner. We leave our hostel tomorrow and will be staying with Katie's sister, Megan!!
