On monday morning 7th of july i took the Eurostar-fast train in Brussels to go to London , normally it takes 2 hours but because of a problem in the chunnel ( the tunnel under the channel ) the train arrived 2 hours and 20 minutes late in London ..

After that ceremony i had to sprint through London to catch my train back to Brussels but arrived in StPancras-station i've got the message that our train had a delay of nearly 5 hours ...so it was early tuesday-morning when i arrived home, just on time to drive to Le Touquet for the 4th stage ...
