On 11 Sep 2010, we took Eurostar from Brussels to London. We were almost late as we rushed back to the airport to collect our luggage after Brugge trip and head to the main train station at Brussels Central.
The train ride was unexpectedly boring. Probably due to the fact that the train crosses a sea for London. We see nothing but darkness. By the time we reach London, it is at about 8pm. We made our way through the tubes (their name for train/subways) to my colleague's friend's work place (she's a nurse). Taking a bus is indeed a challenge for our luggage wasn't light to begin. Thankfully, it is not the first time my colleague is in London. It could have been worse if 2 clueless ladies were to go round London at 11pm in the night. We were so tired that we didn't bother taking pictures.
We took a bus ride to the city the next morning after a hearty brunch made by my colleague and her friend.

We walked along the streets towards The National Gallery - A small museum which is opened to all.

We continued walking around to London's eye and the Big Ben. And along the way, the London Classics - the London Telephone and the London Bus.

The next morning, we went shopping in Harolds. Bought 3 bottles of Estee Lauder Advanced Night Recovery 100ml at 75 pounds each! Cheap! (in reference to prices in SG)
We head to The British Museum.

And I didn't regret it. The musical is lovely!!
