[Nice - London - Paris] Part 12: London, a city swept by snow

The overnight heavy snow brought London to a different world. It is a gift for children, they threw snow balls to each other and made snowman, laughing, singing and enjoying. However, the whole city stopped running, and was terribly in mess. Without train, Cambridge University was too far to reach. Anyway, let's stay in London and see something unusual.

Compared with those who had to be stuck at home, we were so lucky to have a hotel close to District Line, which was one of the few lines still crawling to some destinations. We got off at Victoria Station, walked along Buckingham Palace Road, and passed by a square with statue of Ferdinand Foch:
