Our plans: At 9:30, we are going to take a trip to Oxford Circus by tube and then we are going to split up for a shopping excursion at Oxford Street or Carnaby Street or Dover Street Market or the Burlington Arcade or Savile Row or Carnaby Street or Regent Street or Piccadilly. At midday, we are going to have lunch at one of the West End cheap restaurants named The Stockpot. After that, we are going to take the tube to St. Paul's Cathedral and visit it. In the evening, we are going to go to the theatre or to a Rock show or we are going to visit a pub near Leicester Square or we are going to go into a West End Disco to have a fancy disco night for instance in the Mahiki at Dover Street or Madame Jojo's at Brewer Street or the Rumba at Shaftesbury Avenue.

Our report: On Tuesday, 07012010,
after we had had breakfast in our cute Italian café, nearby our hostel, we first went to Knightsbridge with Mr. Seidensticker to visit the famous Harrods department store. Harrods was worth a visit. It was overwhelming with a museum-flair and very beautiful interiors and luxurious goods. Afterwards we went to Oxford Circus by tube. We planned to go shopping all day long in the famous stores like Selfridges or Abercrombie & Fitch. But the bad weather conditions disturbed our city tour a little bit. We also did not manage to visit St. Paul's cathedral as planned, so Mr. Seidensticker did that visit alone and even climbed the dome and took a walk down the hill to the Globe Theatre and had a nice coffee there. Nevertheless all of us found some nice and cheap shoes and dresses and souvenirs. After we had got totally wet, we went back to our hostel to dry our clothes and to do a little siesta. Later we visited a real English pub where we recalled the last days and celebrated the final evening in London. After a short look into a discotheque we went back to our hostel and had more fun there.
