London again.

I was feeling a bit seedy as I changed from Plane to Tube so as I exited the station to find somewhere to settle for the next few days I wasn't too keen to look to far afield.

  I found an inner city hostel across the road and went in to give the man 25 squid per night for B&B.  I didn't bat an eyelid which just goes to show how ridiculous it is that I spent so much of my time bartering prices in Egypt and thought 25 Egyptian Pounds was too higher price for a B&B there (5 quid here) -crazy! 

  I blame the whole bartering system because it creates a mindset that seems to "over-value" money.   People are so desperate to get some off you that you do everything in your power to reduce your loss!

 

Anyway, I stayed in London for a couple of days, caught up with the delightful Dione again (briefly) and saw a few sights.

My oh my!
  I'd wanted to catch a performance of Starlight Express but it wasn't to be.

 

This was my 3rd or 4th visit to London so I wanted to swing by a few spots I hadn't yet seen.  Naturally I had my 2 cameras hanging off me and my trusty Underground map to show me the way.

 

No real story here.  I came.  I saw.  I still felt a little seedy.  I cut my trip short by a couple of days.

The good thing about Darryn was he had a job as a courier so he tripped between Bristol and London pretty much daily.

  I gave him a ring and he collected me and my pack on his next delivery.  Too easy!
