    It's a tempest ? It's a tornado ? It's a hurricane ? No ! It's Maestro arriving in London. ;)

    I just booked my flight hotel room this morning from September 15th to 21st. Six days in London... Woohoo !

    I will take pictures, folks.

    Buckingham Palace.

    All the reports of shooting and stabbing are totally blown out of proportion.

    If you do get shot then try not to bleed on the pavement. Makes an awful mess and someone has to clean it up. Theres a good chap.

    Don't worry, California is ranked #2 or 3 on my "Top ten places to go before I die" list... London is #1. ;)

    Heh... That's gonna be the first place I visit in London ! :lol:

    *Looks on Wikipedia* Hmmm... That's a little far away from my itinerary, but I'll try to drop by.

    Speaking of itinerary, my hotel (Days Inn of Waterloo) is about 18.4 miles away from Heathrow airport... Anyone know how I can get there without paying something like 200$ CDN for a taxi run ?

    Would recommend both the IWM and Hendon, also try and visit HMS Belfast and the Parliament bunkers. You should enjoy it.

    Tube is probably the cheapest (to get anywhere in London) - or the Heathrow Express (~20 pounds to Paddington).

    If you know your way take the bus but I would still take the tube - you can get unlimited day tickets for around 5/6 pounds.
