London 2014 Day 1 Part 1 – Paddington and Café Eterno

Our first destination on our first full day in London was Paddington Station to collect the pocket wifi device we had rented. Of course we enjoyed using the Tube again :)

At Paddington Station we saw a young woman of the cleaning personnel who was about Hermann’s height and of course he went up to her and we talked to her and her colleague. She was from Romania and her name was Daniela. I took a photo of her and Hermann:

Later we went to Café Eterno at Covent Garden. This café is a project of London City Mission and part of the proceeds go to LCM’s homeless day centre Webber Street. We had read about it on the internet and so went there out of curiosity, but we returned several times during our stay because of the very tasty food and tea. It also has got free wifi :)

As Covent Garden station was closed (or rather, just open for exits) we had to walk to Leicester Square station which is not far away.
