Today I took the train from Euston to Folkstone. It cost just under forty pounds (£s) and was only an hour and fifteen minutes or so trip. Once in Folkstone I talked to some locals who recommended I get to Stop 24 at J11. This is a spot just before the exit to the Channel Tunnel from England to France. I waited about an hour before someone finally agreed to let me hitch a ride in their car across the channel. I chipped in ten pounds of the 47 it cost them for a round trip to France and back. In case you don't know, the channel tunnel is per car (doesn't matter how many people are in it). Now that I am writing this, not sure what I did was legal?
The family that took me across in their car was super nice, they emailed me this picture of the tunnel. I should have had them take a picture of me and them together! Can't believe I didn't think of it. The time flew by. It only took about thirty to thirty-five minutes to cross. They dropped me at a Shell petrol station on the French side and Dr. Novotny showed up about two hours later. Poor guy, after wearing the same clothes for so long, I am ripe!
