Short stay in England

London Heathrow Airport

London Heathrow Airport

I have been to England once. It was just three hours to wait on a connecting flight to Tokyo. Though it was short, it was unforgettable, because of trouble.

When I was in a restroom, I heard an announcement. But I couldn't understand what happened because of my poor English skills. Going out the restroom, I saw that some shutter in the airport was closed. I asked someone who was next to me and he said "A fire broke out inside of the airport" calmly. It did not bring about a big problem. It was not terrorism. I felt relieved to know that.

All of my remembrance about England is the above. I have never seen anything but inside of the airport. On the next flight, I want to go out from the airport to have a good memory.

Trouble in the London airport restroom
by: Gary Wolff

That's a very interesting story, Keisuke.

I can really relate to your story, because I can't count how many times in Japan I've heard some announcement that I didn't understand.

Fortunately, almost always I was surrounded by a Japanese language translation angel, who very cheerfully & graciously helped me understand in English what was said.

Yes, by all means, I hope you get a chance in the future to spend more time in England.

Which sightseeing spot will you visit first?
