London

Yesterday Roos, Marco and myself went to London. We went by train from Woking station to Waterloo and then took the Tube to Leicester square. The weather was very English; a few serious rain showers and a grey sky. The city however was brightly decorated with Christmas lights so it was quite nice. We arrived quite late in the day and first got some hot chocolate before going to Hamleys. Hamleys, on Regent Street, is the oldest toy store in the world. It opened in 1760. This being a few days before Christmas, the store was incredibly busy. Similar to Harrods the store has people demonstrating the various toys:  boomerangs, paper airplanes and other things were flying around in the store. At the end of the day the choice was overwhelming and we didn’t buy anything. It was fun to visit though. We walked through London and strolled by Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the London Eye.
