I am in Paris. I took the Eurostar train from London to Paris via the “chunnel” yesterday. I’m staying in a hostel in Montmartre, which is this cool old neighborhood of Paris. There are a total of 8 people in my room, but it’s really two separate rooms with the door removed and there are only 4 people in each room.
okay, several quick items: 1) these goofy british keyboards have the “shift” keys in strange places, so i’m rarely going to capitalize anything anymore. consider it all part of my european adventure. 2) i discovered that my hostel offers internet access for a pound per hour, versus the roughly 1.6 pounds per hour offered by burger king.
Okay, so I’m writing this from the basement of a Burger King in the middle of London’s trendy theatre district. No, I was not eating at Burger King…I just noticed their huge sign for their high-speed internet access on the sidewalk. They literally have about 100 PCs on their bottom floor computer lab. It’s all very disturbing, I must say.
