16.50: leave home, walk towards tram station
17.05: arrival at tram station, seeing a tram leave just as we arrive.
17.45: still waiting for tram 23/24 to come! Losing patience. We decide to call for a taxi.
17.55: first tram since 17.05 is there. We now wait for taxi as it’s ordered and we’re not near platform anymore

18.30: arrival at Eurostar check-in where the 18.59 train is displayed as cancelled.
18.32: we realise that Eurostar decided to display arrival times at check-in. Our 18.59 train is going.
19.10: train comes to a halt, smell of metal on metal enters the interior of train: emergency stop for train ahead it seems.
