I’m sitting in my hotel room** in London (across from the Buckingham Palace site) fuming. I just got off a call from BA where I had hoped to get out of town a day early. No joy. ‘Twould seem that if you book through Expedia, you can’t upgrade or change your flight (unless you want to pay 2.5X the cost of your original flight on BA’s site.) I couldn’t even use my BA miles to do the upgrade/update.
So, I will spend the rest of my time in the UK doing some shooting around London. Alan Roxburgh heads out in a couple of hours and will be back in Canada in the late afternoon. We’ve had a wonderful time in the Old Country. I’ll blog more on that later.
Last night we got together with Jonny Baker and recorded audio* for another Allelon Netcast Roxburgh Journal. This podcast with Jonny should be up on June 15th. (The Andrew Jones podcast recorded when TSK was in Montreal will be up June 1.)
Jonny comments on his blog about our meeting. (I had the pleasure of appearing as the strong silent type – keeping quiet for over an hour is never an easy task for me, but I succeeded.) We had hoped to have a rollicking time with Jonny and Andrew in London – but Andrew’s travel schedule was uncooperative. Next time!
Check out Jonny’s fotos at flickr. He is quite a good photog. (Quite is used in the North American sense.)
*A tech note: At my recommendation, Alan travels with a USB powered Mic, the Blue Snowball. It plugs directly into Al’s MacBook Pro and we use Audio Hijack Pro to record the audio. I’d love a little more output from the Mic, but I am quite pleased with the audio quality. (And yes we did do the upgrade to the mic.)
**We got a rather amazing deal on the well located hotel. Unfortunately, London has decided to be unseasonably warm – and the AC in all the rooms would appear to be rather Shakespearean – full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. (Kind of reminds me of a former pastor, but I digress.)
