[PUBLIC] Return to London

Its been about 90 minutes since I went whistling through passport control after an interview that couldn't have lasted more than 15 seconds. In that time I've been driven across through London in a black cab, ordered bangers and mash and watched Manchester United take the lead over Chelsea.

I'm back in England. God save the Queen.

The dollar trading at 44 pence is hurting, and I'm glad I'm getting to expense most of my costs here. The cab to the hotel was less than a 15 minute ride, but it rang up to £60, over $122. I can understand why I didn't received authorization to rent a car -- the prices there are even more extravagant.

I'll be in England all week. For those of you keeping score, or responsible for picking me up from the airport, I'm coming home Friday on AA0155, landing at 2020. I might make it to Friday Night, but only if the airlines and passport control are kind to me.
