Departure Day. Saturday, January 29, 2011.

31 01 2011

Had a sumptuous breakfast at the airport hotel I was staying in in Paris.  Staying in an apartment is great but having a buffet breakfast with many choices isn’t bad either.

View from the hotel.  Air crafts in the morning haze.

Getting to the airport terminal.

On Airbus A380 one more time.

Until next time.

Life in London 2011, Day 3

Checked out of apartment after one meeting in the morning.

and headed to the next one at the Landmark Hotel in Marylebone in a beautiful restaurant with a stunning atrium ( for a lunch meeting.

I had no idea the Marylebone station was so nice.  It is the neighborhood in which we had dinner the night before.

Moving on from the Landmark to the Baglioni Hotel ( in Kensington.  Was planning to take the tube but running out of time, ended up in a cab and my new discovery of the day was that some London taxis have automated doors.

The lobby in the Baglioni Hotel.

Off to the airport on Heathrow Express after picking up my luggage from the apartment and another discovery: you need to get off at a station called “Heathrow Central” which didn’t exist the last time I was visiting, and change trains in order to get to Terminal 4.  So those passengers flying with Skyteam (, it is not really 15 minutes from Paddington.

Finally some time to relax in the Skyteam lounge before flying out to Paris.

VERY cold and dark London.

Meetings all day in the apartment and out.

Was taken to a surprisingly good Japanese restaurant for lunch.

And dinner at an Indian-based Asian restaurant.  The food was great though I had seen multiple bad reviews on it.

Goodbye to my Cannes apartment

And hello to my London apartment

Dinner appointment

As with the previous evening, trying to stay awake during dinner was most challenging.  Quite tired by the time we came out.
