    I'm very excited to hear that, as I adore big cities. Quick question: I remember reading Lennon's biography, when he left London and moved with Yoko to New York in the early 1970s. The reporter asked him why the move, and John replied how he thinks London is like a lame sleepy village compared to the grandness of New York (or some words to that effect).

    Now, I find that puzzling, because to me New York is a pretty drab, unexciting (even a bit boring) place. So why would Lennon claim that it's much grander than London? Seems odd...

    Liverpool really.

    That aside it was 40 odd years ago he said that. London is very different now.

    Breaking news: just received the message from the landlord that the apartment I booked in London has been temporarily restricted by the police. The surrounding streets & areas has been closed since last Saturday night 3rd June, as the police carry out their investigations on the crime scene. All guests in the property had to be evacuated & were relocated.

    Shit!
