lol...

Try to steal the crown jewels. They´re worth quite a lot. And send my 20% away the same day.

Other stuff you shouldn´t miss: if you are female, check the tower, and take a walk thru Notting Hill, you might meet Hugh Grant. Have a tea with him at five, try wonderful little cakes with jam and cream.

If you are male, slap Kylies butt in Madame Tussauds. Eat lots of cereal, scrambled eggs, sausages and toast for breakfast, so you can cut lunch.

If you go to Nandos (a restuarant) you can get drink refills! If you like chicken its a plus, but if you dont like chicken, then theres always salads and pastas and stuff

I love London. There are tons of things to do, but the centre is a bit overrun with tourists.

I'm considering grad school there next year, at Imperial or King's College. It's terribly expensive for overseas students, unfortunately.

Oh yes. A five minute ride cost Ł6.00 or more. OTOH, they're safe when going home late. I got the same driver twice after a night of drinking and safely drove me to my friend's place.

Stores don't open till 10 am. I found that so bizarre.
Hmmm...stores in Europe seem to have weird hours. They also close at 1700H, usually.

And Jenn, I know I told you this, but go to Windsor and try the maple fudge. Forgot the name of the shop, but it's in front of the castle.

For clothes, try Miss Selfridge...but uh, when they're on sale.

i thought some more

when i was thinking of moving over there, i read a great book called 'Living and Working in London' (I'm 99% sure that was the name of it) - it had some very useful practical info - you might want to check it out.

sorry, i'm booked

...wait...why are YOU drunk? We can't have all three of us drunk. Until we go out to the bar, at least.

And, hey, I'll see you at Doves, and ride back with you to London. So I'll see you for a few hours total.

You will have to be there because we'll be too scared to talk to each other.

You must visit The Ten Bells pub in White Chapel "East end" if you can.
Although, I do not suggest wandering the neighborhood streets at night.
