Too many days without any connectivity . . .

Back from London. We used the in-hotel internet for 1 day, the remainder of the time there was completely unconnected (had even left my cell phone in the states). The in-hotel connecttion was pretty flaky, would be on for 10 minutes and then nothing would go through for 10 and then back on again. Not worth the trouble (esp at £15 a day).

For the most part not having a connection was good, we usually left the hotel by 8-9am and were rarely back before 11pm. Doesn't leave much time for the computer. On the last few nights I stayed up late putting together a slide show, some iMovie sequences and the London Trip DVD.

We stopped twice into a nearby internet cafe but was packed, ended up buying a £5 phone card which gave us ~100 minutes and tried to find times during the day or night when we could catch the kids at home and awake.

It is good to be back, and connected to a constant and reliable connection.
