[QUOTE]Well, as you said, it's London, so you'll have to narrow it down. Culture? Good food from almost all over the world? Park full of deer (though January might not be the best time)? Videogames? I rarely leave my flat so I wouldn't know (even less in January), but at least I know people who could answer better. [/QUOTE] Videogames were actually near the top of my list! After spending so much time in central Europe where there is a surprising dearth of videogames (short of Chip n' Dale bootlegs for systems I've never heard of), it will be refreshing! One of the problems with visiting London is that I barely know where to start. You and Maou have certainly provided a good place to start though! I'll see if I can think of some more specific questions to narrow down the field. I understand that some of the best Indian food outside of South Asia can be found in London, so if you have any suggestions in that regard, I'd love to hear them. [QUOTE] Well, you'll have to become a [URL=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-o2qI6-P4Y]Londonian Gothic[/URL] for one thing, as you well know from your stays here at the Cafe. [/QUOTE] I had completely forgotten about that [:2ch_are:][:2ch_are:][:2ch_are:] [QUOTE] You must indeed visit Lord Iggy-ngton, who thumbed his nose at the Americans and their Boston during his cancelled sojourn to the New World some forthnights ago, but who I have on good authority remains ensconced in Her Majesty's capital. [/QUOTE] Iggy, I'm nowhere near your Power Level, but if you'd care to have a micro Cafe meetup, let me know. [QUOTE] The British Museum is better than it ought to be, and you could do worse than to rent a car and drive to ancient little towns in southern England that belong in a BBC period piece. Find Dartmoor and its strange stormy moor with weird magnetic/haunted current in the air that will break your compass near the unvisited stone cricles. Or go to Avebury where they have plunked an entire town in the middle of a gigantic stone circle, ironically preserving it from the tourist hordes. Glastonbury Tor would be good for communing with King Arthur's spirit and climbing this video game-like windy spire. [/QUOTE] Hmm, I had considered visiting the south at least a bit, since distance-wise it's not that far to go really. My west-coast wizardlike sensibilities were causing me to think of going to the tourist morass of Stonehenge and Salisbury, but I'm thinking Avebury might be off the New Age charts for Ley Line proximity! Hmm, thanks for pointing it out!
