London-Paris Day 3 – Sunday

 

IMG_6253Today we got up and went for breakfast a little later: there was toast, croissants, cereal, meat, cheese and a choice of drinks (plus a little bit of Nutella – yum!). We went back to our rooms and packed our bags ready for going to Paris, later in the day.

Before our evening departure we went to the Tate Modern, which is an old power station made into an art gallery, with all artists of different kinds. We were given three different art pieces to find in the galleries. The art pieces were: ‘Weeping Woman’ by Pablo Picasso, ‘Black on Maroon’ by Mark Rothko and finally ‘Hate and Power can be a Terrible Thing’ by Tracey Emin. The three different pieces stirred very different emotions from sorrow and hatred, to calmness and power. We started off lacking enthusiasm going into the Tate Modern but we all came out very inspired and passionate about many of the artworks in the galleries.

After that we then travelled to Oxford Circus by the Underground, where we went for lunch and shopping on Regent Street. We then went back to the hotel where we collected our bags and headed to St Pancras station to catch the Eurostar.

We are now on the Eurostar heading to our next destination, Paris. Our spirits are high and we are all very excited for what awaits us through the Channel Tunnel!
