I recognized him right off. Learn something new every day. I always thought James Bond was British

Haha, George is more persistant than all the women ever were Wink


Very nice pictures Francis. The hotel looks a little bit
run down, but what doesn't in London.....

yay, francis, i'm glad to see someone else do what i do all the time: literally translate slovak idioms into english just to puzzle the hell out of everybody. i no longer know which idioms are slovak and which are english. i use them all, then explain at length...

Actually I do that too and German idioms are so twisted
that in the translation they almost become embarassing
<sigh>

Awesome pictures, Francis. They equal National Geographic. I love the old world look. I completed your tour of the catacombs some time ago.

I do believe that George and Roger equate you with the man in the mac and carrying a laptop who stands looking at The Regent Palace hotel.<smile>

aha....

I stayed at that hotel when I was last in London (as did c.i., I think).
Run down - yes, tiny rooms, yes - but cheapish (for London) and really well located. I could walk to and from my dinner with Prince G....

C'mon, more, more.....
