Day 51- Travel to London - Day Off

Good morning and boy am I hungry! I think I will dive into some room service and catch up on some internet time today!

Let's see,

two eggs, bacon, mushrooms, baked beans and hash browns for only 18 English pounds! Since an English Pound costs around a $1.90 US or so, cool! Only $35 bucks for a couple o eggs. A small cup of weak coffee can't cost much more than $8, add in the 20% gratuity/delivery charge and I can easily score eggs and beans feast for under $60 if I skip the OJ, of course, awesome!

On second thought, a 20 oz Starbucks coffee and one of those very berry scones may be the way to go and across the street I head. We have stayed at this hotel the last few times here. Crossing the street to where the food and coffee shops are is a bit of a challenge with the cars speeding by and complicated by the whole 'drive on the left' thing they do here. Have you ever played Frogger?

Now for the Internet, lets take a look:

$38 a day, wow, another bargain! Got to love the strength of the mighty American dollar! No easy way around this one though, aaargh, I don't mind sharing the love, generously in the form of cash but when I feel gouged, it brings out the punker side of me. Well, I have a plan that will have to wait for some hardware, but soon, soon......

Till tomorrow,

The sometimes angry Dave Rat.

Over at Ratty's Pepper's Blog he explains the joys and expense of two things very near and dear to me. Hotel WiFi and breakfast. The euro/dollar rate isn't too bad but the GBP/dollar rate is just over 2 bucks counting...
