From Lelystad to Lydd

On Monday, December 29, Maurits and Rene were to go to England for a two days trip. The plan was to fly to Fairoaks in the morning, and then to go to the office by train from Woking. On Tuesday Rene would take the day off, to fly around London, and then via a field in France back to Lelystad. It did not work out that way. Upon arriving in Fairoaks, we took the train from Woking to Waterloo. After a few minutes the train was stopped. An announcement came about "fatalities" further down the route, and that all four tracks were closed to London Waterloo. We went back to Woking Station, and the passengers left the trains. Since we could not reach the office in a reasonable time (and also the blackberry did not work), Rene decided to cancel the initial plans, and fly back to Lelystad to do the work on Tuesday.
