Thanks so much all, but I'm not very interested in accommodation tips. (Unless it's a great place for $50!!)Hostels are either share rooms (yuk, it'd be with a stranger, as I am travelling alone in the US) or more expensive for a single room that I can get elsewhere.
Your apartments, CJ, are way more expensive than I can get elsewhere.
I think I have that in hand.
What I am needing to know is who is interested in meeting.
So far it is Tsar and Boida, with Beth as a maybe, but at a time that extends my stay at great expense.
Soz and the Region/Jesses are a maybe I don't know when.
It's looking increasingly like I'll have to decide to miss the chance of Beth (
) and only stay mebbe five days....from the 1st October (effectively Saturday 2nd, as I'll be stuffed the first night) and fly out on the seventh.
