Hello friends !
Finally, we're back ! We spent a wonderful time in London.
Six great days and not too cloudy !
We discovered a city full of different people, full of life, very well organized and clean.
Let me just say something : Links between English and French people are supposed to not be very cordial.
Our History, from Middle Age could explain this. So I went to London, with a little bit of apprehension.
Then, I found really, truly kind persons ! People were always ready to help us, stopping in the streets when they were realizing we were lost, replying in a very polite way. They were always smiling when we were asking something.
Once, close to Buckingham Palace, my children saw a Bobby. I asked him if I could take a picture. He took my children by shoulders and had a wonderful smile with a mustache !
I couldn't imagine this with a French policeman, for example !...
Maybe we should obligate them to have mustache ... :D
And it made me feel a little bit ashamed for our way to welcome foreign visitors, here...
I just hope if one day you'll come in France, you'll meet kind and educated people as I met in England.
Because, even in France, they exist ! :)
I just have ONE regret ... I did not taste a scone. I wanted so hard ... And I did not find one in bakery ! We found baguettes, croissants, pains au chocolat, but no scone !
Here some pictures : some were taken with my cell, sorry for the quality.
Paris : Gare de Lyon. For me, the most beautiful Parisian Train Station.
Paris : Gare du Nord, Eurostar, to London, Saint Pancras.
First day : we made the classical touristic bus tour, to discover the city.
The metro was so clean, regarding to the one of Paris or Marseille
We found Sean Connery, on the boat !! Well, almost...
The most courageous palm tree in the world !
Well... I think it's not easy to get out with this costume ! :D
I'll post other pictures day by day and some recipes my friends cooked for us. No english food, unfortunately...
I hope you're all fine, friends, and I'm happy to be with you again !
