If you can't recommend a particular place to stay, can someone suggest what areas might be nice to stay. Many wealthy, generous pedestrians is a good thing.

Depends what you're looking for really. Somewhere central? Touristy? What do you want to do/where do you want to go while you're here?

If you are on your own we can probably put you up... might not be so good with the Dutch girl though.

I want to eat good food and drink good beer.


Funko, that sounds good if she doesn't go, but I think she probably will. Since I'm constantly harassed about how I never go any place any more, I can't imagine she won't. I suppose I should just ask.

Ok, well anywhere central will probably be ok. As very, very basic general rules you should avoid the East and South and stick to the center, north and West you'll probably be ok.

If in doubt post a location when you find a possibilty and ask us.

I could find good food in Reading, I have some experience, but London would be more of a struggle.

Oh Lurker - you don't need to tip bar staff here and for restaurant tips 10% is absolutely fine.

(with the exchange rate our minimum wage is nearly double yours)

Dutch girl is ticked off b/c I won't go anywhere she suggests but am willing to fly overseas to see a bunch of internet geeks. I'm not sure I handled this in the best way possible.

Anyway, I'm betting she will go. London just wasn't her most exciting destination b/c she lived there for 3 or 4 months a few years ago.

I'll either buy the ticket next week or I won't. Either way I'll know for sure then. I am hoping to, and right now I'd say it's 60-40 in favor of going. I would arrive Thursday morning and depart Monday afternoon. If I stayed any longer, it would undoubtedly have a significant negative impact on our two countries' relationship.

I'll decide tomorrow. BA had a special for airfare and 3 nights at the Royal National hotel (which I think is in the Hyde Park area) for about $430, but then I read the fine print and found out the hotel stay had to be from Sunday to Wednesday, which is the exact opposite of what I need. Bastards.

There won't be a lot of Eurotwats at this meeting, will there?
