I ask because I decided at the last moment to spend a few days in Central London before flying back to the US from Italy, and will have December 6th through 9th free with no commitments. Be happy to spring for lunch or a couple of pints if anyone is interested. Also any suggestions on what to do/see beyond the obvious stuff would be equally welcome. I'll be based near Bloomsbury Square and don't plan to hire a car, so will be walking or at the mercy of public transport from there.
I've definitely not been in tourist mode the past six weeks here in Italy, but I may have enough material for a short photo report or two after I get back anyway. I visited Cortona and Todi-- both superb hill towns -- and did take a few snaps of each. I might be able to throw together a little London report too, but that remains to be seen.
I've been to Todi more than once, but never to Cortina. Even when I was studying in the northeast, it never appealed to me; I was more interested in major cities (Venice, Trieste and others)and towns by the Adriatic.
Is it your first time in London, fumobici? I was only there once, interpreting, and saw almost nothing... Come to think of it, I was at the SOAS, which is very close by. As are the British Museum (which I didn't see) and the London Review Bookshop, which I did, but not for as long as I would have liked. www.londonreviewbookshop.co.uk/
