On Our Own in London (Part 3)

Somewhere in the city, near Great Russell Street, outside a place called 'Shanghai Blues'

Big red bus
St Paul Cathedral


The tourist

Rioters and their camps outside St Paul Cathedral

View of Thames River & Tower Bridge from Millennium Bridge

Pretty Christmas tree at Covent Garden

Le Pain Quotidien at Covent Garden
Where we stopped for a teabreak and recharge

Heavenly delicious pavlova with fresh berries

Freshly baked scones with cream and jam

Christmas decoration and caroling

A place to go for delicious mussels (done in many creative cooking methods)

My mussels in Florentine
Creamed spinach sauce and cheese grilled


Jamie Oliver's restaurant, Covent Garden
JAMIE'S ITALIAN
It is (almost) as good as seeing Jamie in real!

All good things comes to an end.
Goodbye London!

Goodbyes are not for forever.
I WILL BE BACK!

Thank you Europe and London for giving me one of the most interesting, beautiful and fun traveling experience in my life. 
I love your weather, though unpredictable, it kept things interesting and saucy in a way. 
I love your culture and the way buildings were built, romantic and vintage. 
I love almost everything about you and I will miss every single thing about you. 
I will reminisce my days spent with you and will be counting my days, months and maybe years till I see you again.
