Today Marcus went to London to meet Marty from New York and spent some time with him. Together they explored London and came across several sights, among them Buckingham Palace and the Victoria Memorial in front of it, Admiralty Arch, the Palace of Westminster with Big Ben and the London Eye. They also went – yes, all on foot! – to Downing Street No 10, Piccadilly Circus and No 1 Golden Square which is the base of Absolute Radio. As they could not get enough, they also saw Chinatown and the Palace Theatre where the musical ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ was just on.
All in all they had a great time in London, the weather was good and the company even better. Just the way home was very complicated. Due to some rail problems hardly any train went home and Marcus had to wait at the station. Later he took a train that was supposed to go to the south of England, but nobody actually knew if that was correct. At Haywards Heath he changed traines and finally got the right one to Littlehampton. Anyway, hours later than expected Marcus was safely home again.
