Lunchtime Photo

Family week continues today with a selection from my London-loving sister. This is a view on a hazy day from the top of the Eye, London’s famously huge ferris wheel. It’s highly recommended if you visit. Some of you might be put off by the fact that it’s such a touristy thing to do—and it is—but you’re a tourist. Embrace it. And it really is fun and it really does provide a great view. On the downside, it’s a bit pricey and, in summer, can get crowded at peak times. Plan accordingly.

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
