    oh man!!!! Most of those pics are making me reminisce about my study abroad experience in Brighton....it was awesome. I was a bit surprised by all the rainbow flags when I first arrived b/c I had no idea it was known as a gay-friendly city.

    The memories...it's making me want to look at my own pics and share

    I am glad you had fun

    Tim, I am green with envy. I have only been to London, but one of these days I want to spend at least 3 weeks touring England, Scotland and Wales. Your pictures have wetted my appetite even more.

    Glad you are back safe and sound and posting to RJ once again.

    I'm stealing your gay shrimp pic since in France, 'shrimp'(crevette) is the closest thing we have to 'twink'.

    I'm gonna spam the French forums I go to with this, worse than the lolcats here.

    N.B. Glad you had a nice vacation

    One is sure there was not.

    But One was talking about the Queen; no plural.icon_wink.gif

    But too see Windsor Castle, is a dream.

    But I truly hope you had a great time.

    Did you visit the queen, by any chance, and perhaps frightened a rodent under her throne?
