04.07.2014 - 13.07.2014
The seminar ended at around 1 PM, we all went back to Burwell House, and I went with a friend that I met during the weekend to Cambridge where we spent the afternoon. We started on Lensfield road where we visited the church of "Our Lady and the English Martyrs." We walked on Gonville Place and reached Parker's Piece park. Apparently, there was a Tour de France event going on, as well as some sort of farmer's market or fair. There were stands that were selling homemade goods and others offering activities for children. The weather was bizarre because when the sun was showing, it was very hot, but as soon as clouds shadowed the sun, the weather would get quite cold. We stayed in the park until a friend of my friend came to pick us up and took us to Cambridge station. We took the train at around 3 PM and headed to Kings Cross stations. We stayed at a café in the station and discussed the seminar until it got close to 6 PM and we had to leave. We went to St Pancras underground station, and I took the Northerline to Waterloo station, which required me to change trains in Euston.
When I finally arrived to Waterloo station, I had to navigate through the streets (and the traffic that is quite different from what I am used to) to arrive to Webber Row street, where my hostess' home is located. Soon after the initial introduction, explanations and getting-to-know each other, I hurried out of the apartment to explore Waterloo Road. As it was already the evening, my stomach started to cry for some food. I had no idea which restaurant to go for so I took my time to read the menus and consider the prices. As it was still the beginning of my Londoner adventures, I wanted something affordable. I went for a cheeseburger and fries at Fishcothèque on Waterloo Road. It was not the best meal I had, but it was okay for the price. As I was feeling tired, I decided to go back home and catch on some sleep in order to be ready to go the next day. It rained on my way home and my feet were soaked. But I was happy.
