Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, if rdf can blow his own horn, I can at least mention my own diary London - Dying like a dinosaur where I talk aobut the way London has become an unsustainable economy.

Incidentally, a Friend of mine who now lives in Carcasonne came over this Xmas and was shocked by the prices of hotels, meals and booze. Didn't know how we could afford it and swore never to return. Which I thought was ironic cos he retired at the age of 46 cos he was already a millionaire.

Hey...we decided to spend a few days in London before Christmas and the cheapest hotel accommodation we could get with lift facilities (and not much else!!!) was the Travelodge in Covent Garden at £95 per night (€135 at the time?) whereas we could get a room in a small hotel in Paris off Rue Tronchet (beside the Madeleine) for €95 per night.
