London Bridge should have fallen on my head

View Spain/Portugal 2007 on therook's travel map.

London is depressing. Probably because the dollar is so weak to the pound ... 100 american dollars equals 48 british pounds. so i literally cannot buy anything. even a small meal is exorbitantly priced. I got a sandwich for 6 american dollars which wasnt bad, but to ride the damn tube it was 10 dollars (5 pounds). Shit. and for an hour bus ride from the airport to here it was 20 dollars (10 pounds). To say the least, I am not happy. I am hungry. And i am tired. And it cost 15 dollars to check my baggage this morning. I have spent more today than it seems like i would spend in a week in portugal.

I would come back to London for sure if I was a rich american bastard, but even then my money wouldnt last long. I would love to go shopping here though, so mush nice clothing. And the food looks good too if it wasnt 20 bucks. I guess it was a bad place to end my trip. Since I'm pretty much out of money, being in London is just... painful. I have some pictures, but they wont be up for a couple of days. I can only use the internet for 30 minutes here. On the plus side it should only cost another 8 dollars to ride the tube to the airport. hopefully. people here like to tell you tons of different prices. ah. I'll be happy to be home, and just relax.

Even being in Britian i feel like people are speaking another language. Maybe they are.

The countryside in england is very nice though. today was all blue skies. hopefully tomorrow will be nice as well.

So u enjoyed ur Trip :) thats reaLLy Great :)
here is a piece of advice for u from me..Light load Towels three packs are the only towel that is also a tool for the outdoors. Use it as a fire starter coffee filter, water filter, first aid supplement, wind scarf, sweat band and much more. Waterproof packaging covers each piece; that always ensures that the user will have a clean dry cloth.
Check it out @ www.ultralighttowels.com
I can bet u wiLL reaLLy find it useful :)
