    Enjoy your visit, but don't forget that here in Israel we're waiting for your return with Lafas smeared with Charrif and schug and shwarmaa and Humus. Meet ya at Abulafia ubanav.

    PS I heard the Humus in England is nasty but I'm sure you can find some nice tea and crumpets with marmalade overthere

    Hello

    Better warn you that as from the 1st July (just 2 weeks to go) smoking in enclosed public places will be illegal in England.

    No smoking in bars, pubs, cafes, restaurants, cinemas, shul on Shabbat! - so now is your chance to give it up.

    Up to about 10 years ago just about everybody smoked in Israel - even the doctor that was treating my wife down in Eilat was smoking at the same time.

    But the Israeli's have caught up. People have or are stopping - and so can you.

    So how are you going to manage on the flight?

    Only 5 hours in the air but no smoking in the airports and the waiting areas makes it a lot longer.

    As far as beer is concerned - if you're looking for cheap beer go to a Wetherspoons pub. Theres loads of them around the country. There you'll pay around £1.70 (14 shekels) for a pint (just over half a litre).

    Internet cafes are cheap - about the same as in Israel.

    Interesting to note that you are only interested in smoking, beer and the Internet.

    Instead of coming to England why don't you have a couple of months in a bar in Tel Aviv - would be a lot cheaper and you can smoke and drink yourself to death.

    Take all you have.

    Cigarettes over 5 pounds for 20.

    Beer, by the pint anything from 1.80 to 5.00 and beyond.

    Internet cafe, not too bad but varied. take a lap top if possible and get a month by month subscription to a wireless network, you can use in many coffee shops.

    Good luck in London!

    Namaste.

    Everything's more expensive than Israel except supermarket food. Especially cigarettes, accommodation and travel.
