The arrangements for London have been made. JC and I leave the morning of November 3 and return a week later, November 10. We'll be staying at the Strand Palace, which I've been told is in a fairly central location. Thanks to JC's research, we were able to keep the total cost of airfare and accomodations under $1000.
I will continue to try to contact David Pollard, but if I don't get a hold of him before I leave, I'll simply show up at his school and hope he doesn't turn me away.
I'm trying to see if it's feasible to fit in a day trip to Paris as well. Any advice on that?
