As a change, once again the subway, a means of transportation which goes very fast, which probably saved us many traffic-jams.
This time we went to Piccadily Circus to see the bright advertising signs. Then we go to Oxford circus where we enjoyed a free time of three hours to go shopping. After that day very rewarding but also very exhausting we went to the station by subway and back to seaford at 20.45 pm.
Salisbury, is a medieval city in England. She's not that big nor small and beautiful. She has got many shops but less than London. In the city, there is a Cathedral who is very wonderful and important.

Every day, they check the level of the water because if the level is too low, the Cathedral will collapse.
