Ive been in London since Tuesday and I have to say that I am very impressed. It has an atmosphere that I have never before experienced and I can't get enough (well until you account for the insane prices). I leave for Paris Saturday night and I was wondering if anybody will be in town and would like to meet up. Either way is great. Ryan.

London is great. You'll have a fantastic time in Paris too. Wish I could meet up, but alas, I have to work.

London is amazing!! I've gotten the chance to go there 4 times now, and every time I love it more. That sounded really cheesy, but it's true! Have fun in Paris too!

Ah, London is my home away from home... except it's So. Bloody. Expensive. *sigh*

And Paris is my office away from office. Jouissez la ville des lumières!

Glad you like London, I would come along for a meet up, but I have my last ever exam on Saturday, and after that, I'm going out to partay!

Enjoy the rest of your trip!

PS. Space virgin, I always thought you were in the US!! Funny...

I love London too. I can't wait to move back. Hyde Park in the spring, sitting in the top front of the double decker buses, losing myself for days on end in the National Galleries and the British Museum, going to shows on West End, cheese and mushroom pasties, Tesco, covent gardens on the weekend... sigh. Then theres the shit weather, the sky high prices, the dirt, the overcrowdedness...

Never before have I actually heard someone say they like Tesco!

I'm an Asda girl, myself, nice and cheap! But if I have a little more money, it's Sainsburys. I'd love to be able to afford Marks and Spencer food!

I know, I know!

I always wanted to go to a Walmart for some reason... I've never quite known why though. I fear I might be disappointed when I eventually set foot in one.

God my mum shops in Asda...I cannot stand their food not that i buy smart price!

Marks isnt that expensive and they usually have some great offers on...personally you cannot beat one of their norfolk chickens or carrot and corriander soup

The egg & cress sandwich @ Tesco... 90p never tasted so good.

Or the organic version for £1.40.

I just love Tesco for the bargain shelf. A 20p chicken, ready to roast for goodness sake, how GREAT can you get?!
