I?m staying at the Grange City Hotelwhere I got a great deal, ?85.00 for a five star room. I?m right next to Trinity House and a block from the Tower of London. For Sim?s review of broadband internet in hotels, I was disappointed to find their wifi service was expensive. So I didn?t bother connecting. It was actually more expensive than T-Mobile UK service which is available in most train stations and airports.
I have a blister on my foot from wandering the streets of London for 3 hours last night. I went out to look for an interesting place to eat. It started very promising, there was a 007 party at the Billingsgate Fish Market building. I crossed the Thames at London Bridge and passed many drunken and smokey pubs filled with Friday night drinkers. However two hours later I had not found a place that interesting and inviting enough to dine alone in.
Finally I came across a Spanish billiard hall with San Miguel beer, nibbles and pool. There were even some cute girls playing so I watched them while I had a beer and avoided the nibbles. I figured I wasn?t in the ?interesting little cafe?s? part of London. But there were lots of great looking pubs.
