... of Oxford. Next time we will visit Cambridge to compare the 'University town' with the 'university in a town'.
To top off a great final day, we saw another show in the West End. Stephen's choice - Jersey Boys. Just as fantastic second time around, too. In direct contrast to our inept passage to Piccadilly Circus last Friday night, it took us just 30 minutes to leave our hotel, catch the bus to Edgware ...
... into a better mood. After dinner we were too tired to have a drink at one of the local pubs so we made our way back to the hotel. As we walked back into our room, we could only laugh about the situation as it had seemed the stench had gotten worse. We lit the candle, opened the window, and used about 3/4 of the potpourri can to help create a better situation. Fortunately, after about 30 minutes, the smell wasn't as noticeable and we were able to get some ...

... there, and stare and look all around me. We got to our seats just in time for the anthems. When it was time for the Polish anthem, a **** tons of people around us were cheering, and we were thinking "are we in the wrong spot?". We were SURROUNDED! But it made the game so much more fun.

Finding a bus home at the north end of Regents Park was problematic & we walked more than planned. Ended up taking a break to buy stevia at Whole Foods in Camden Town. Surprise - it was a very small store, not the warehouse model in the U.S.

reasonable price (April), few minutes walk to the Barbican station. Room with small kitchen-dishes, pots and pans, cutlery, dishwasher, fridge. Save money by having breakfast in the room instead of paying 10 pounds for toast and tea. A Tesco nearby to get grocery. Room is very small. No AC. Room service is optional for 6 pounds a day. But once a week service is included if you stay more then a week.
