London, the capital city of United Kingdom and once upon a time was the centre of the world is always in my wish list to travel there. However due to the restriction it is not easy to enter UK. But this time I have taken the opportunity of my business trip to pay her a visit! Thanks to my buddy to offer me accommodation :) First I was thinking of taking train to London, but Eurostar is not cheap at that time. Furthermore, the trip will take longer time. My colleague in Amsterdam told me to look for the cheap flight ticket from Easyjet. I couldn't believe my eye when I saw the price - €135 return flight! Without hesitation I booked the flight and fly to my dreamland!
I took the early flight at 9am, and when I reached London Stansted airport it was only 10 mins past. This is due to the 1 hour time different. The flight took about 1 hour and 10 mins. I need to get a hostel for my another colleague who joined me so we took the A6 bus to Baker street. I was quite busy working before this and did not have sufficient time to survey around. So my first destination in London was to the famous British Museum, then only meet up with my buddy at night.
I took the Underground to Russell Square station, just a short distance I found the British Museum. It was really amazing visit!
Easyjet, took the photo when boarding.
Another shot from Amsterdam Schipol Airport.
1 more shot for the memory!
Arrived Stansted Airport, waiting for the bus to London.
Hotel Russell at Russell Square underground station, very unique building.

Here I am, the famous museum.
It is a great building and full of tourists. This is free of charge baby!
Take a rest first for the longer journey later on...
After I entered the museum, inside is actually very nice. White colour painting with some Rome statues.. wonderful.
As you can see the building is full of tourists.
Egyptian empire and the Pharaoh.
This is a statue with black marble.. those ancient people really can create wonder.
Mummy! Not sure if he will jump out from the glass window or not? LOL...
This is the cover of the mummy, it is made of pure gold!
Japanese samurai armour!
Money from China, Dynasty Ching.
Buddish item from Tibet.
The museum close at 5:30pm so we went out for our dinner, then took the underground again to London Bridge..
The bridge is very beautiful.. really worth to visit London!
After that I took the Underground to Liverpool Street, and took train to my buddy's place.
We have a long chat at that night! We will meet up with another good friend tomorrow! Yeahhhh
