Neeley and I took the Eurostar from Paris to London under the English channel two days ago for the first time, the view is spectacular from 250 feet below the water.
The trip takes about 2.5 hours, and drops you off in the newly renovated St Pancras station. The station is beautiful, but we didn’t take any pictures yet, as we were lumbering around with our luggage. We will return later in the week to take pictures.
The following day we explored the bank district and ate a wonderful lunch at Simpson’s Tavern, a great lunch place in the heart of the financial district with a long history.
Brick Lane is the plan for the near future as we prepare to host our workshop participants for the coming up Nottinghill Carnival.
