Walter - just checking!

Are you bribing me - or am I supposed to be trying to bribe you? Or is Fiona bribing someone - or what day is it anyway:?:

Is this a meal at Walter's place?

margo, Before you hit the road for London, get yourself a one week train pass - or for however long you're planning to spend in London. The pass will let you take the underground from Heathrow to the Regent Palace Hotel and for the return trip, plus all the travel in all six zones by underground, train or bus - any time of day or night. If you get off at Picadilly Circus, the Regent Palace Hotel is just a few steps away. Also, book yourself for a private shower and toilet for an extra 10 pounds per day. It's worth every penny. c.i.

c.i.

I'm not a new traveller to London. I've been there many times before. I'm really only there one day and a few part days this trip. I'll probably get a day pass for the one day I do have in London. An unplanned (at the time) trip to Switzerland is taking up 2 of my 4 days!

Walter - from the pictures the Regent Palace Hotel look a bit "dated" - but I figure I can cope. I stayed in some real dives before, and probably will again - given the strength of the Oz dollar! I don't spend much time in my room, so don't need luxurious hotels. I'm splashing out a little (about the same cost as the Regent Palace room) for a luxury 4 star hotel for my layover day in Narita on the way home! Attempting to beat the jet lag in much the same time zone as home.

You had me fooled for a bit there Walter. I was getting really excited about the forthcoming visit with such a spectacular table!

Don't worry Margo I am not a pushover until someone wants to hurt me! But I am sure I will be able to get my reports out without the censors getting their mitts on them.

All this talk of travel it's making me quite travel sick. In fact tonight I was trying to make some headway with the typing of my travel diary from the big trip I did in Nov 01 with my sister when we were in Sydney, Perth, Japan, Thailand, New Zealand and Hong Kong. It was a marathon and the most wonderful trip particularly the bit down memory lane in Sydney! I felt as though the 25 years away had never happened. My friends of old made me so welcome that I almost stayed!! I gotta stop I'm getting too emotional.

Bye for now Fiona

Fiona, I'm looking forward to hearing about your November 2002 tour of Sydney, Perth, Japan, Thailand, New Zealand and Hong Kong. I wonder what McTag thinks about your almost permanent residence in the land of Oz? Wink c.i.

Yes should have mentioned this before, Mrssteve41oo and I are in Germany for a few days next week and might even meet up with Walter and Mrswalter.

BTW Walter, the subject of hot mud baths came up. Apparantly ordinary swimming will suffice, so no need to order extra mud from the ? well wherever you get mud from...mud mine? mud farm?

Have been doing sausage homework

Due to EU-laws, diversa US-regulations etc: no sausages per post but just eating at the place.

BTW place:
this is the 'mud mine':

And quoting from the BBC-link:

... ...it would take a few years of living in Germany to sample all of them.


You cancelled the flight back, Steve?

Is that serious Walter? It looks like a peat bog, not a genuine mud emporium.

Have they found any Celtic human sacrifices preserved in the bogs of Germany? Which reminds me they are playing Porto tonight, just in time for the kick off...

Fascinating

thanks Walter, you really know your mud.

CI hi, how are you?

Agree it looks more like something unpleasant to do with pigs....CELTIC 2 PORTO 2 Larsson scored again! what am I doing writing this drivel?

All I must say is that I would not mind getting covered in the stuff with that German mud-mechanic. (Trust the Germans to have technically qualified mud experts!) Off now to watch the end of the match. Come on you greens!

Well, I'm more a silt expert:
a) served on a 'silt-slipper' (=landing craft)
b) have been in a spa, where they used silt (instead of "other mud")http://www2.urlaubstraum.de/regionen/theregion/285278977/bilder/r_em_schlick_155h.jpg
