Great Britain (part 1)

So last week was my break here in Paris, and I was lucky enough to be able to get a United Kingdom visa. So here goes my short trip to the UK.

I took the Mega bus from Paris to London. It was 8 hours 30 minutes including immigration. I had a friend picked me up at Victoria Coach Station where I get off the bus. We then took a train to go to Luton, a city that is an hour away from London. I stayed at my friend’s apartment in Luton during my visit. and my London tour started the next morning!

It was raining really hard when I got to London. So I went to the “weekend food market” to get something to eat before my journey, and also wait for the rain to stop. They had all kinds of food there, from appetisers to desserts. I tried the Italian sea food fried rice with lemon juice. It was good, but really different. Then I saw the cake shop. The first thing that caught my eyes were the New York cheesecake. It reminded me of our 1828 cheesecake. Now I know the first place I’m going to when I get back to Mckendree!

After the rain, I went to see London Eye and Big Ben.

After London Eye and Big Ben, I walked to the Buckingham Palace. The palace was massively beautiful. There were guards stood in front of the gate.
