London Baby (a la Joey Tribbiani)

Planning a trip to London during the Eid vacation. Haven't been there in ages. Know any good hotels? Any ones I should avoid?

What's frustrating is that I still don't know when that is. When are we gonna move into this century and have some system in our calendar? How are we supposed to plan anything with this bendy system? And what about celebrating New Year on the Saturday following New Year's day? So New Year is on the 7th of January now!!!

if you want a really good hotel try the novotel hotels, they can be found all around london .. their really good, infact you dont have to sell your kiddnys to the black market to afford staying there .. heres their site you can book online .. www.accorhotels.com .. about the bendy system i already booked my flight to leave on the second of november screw them if they think theyre gonna ruin my vacation :D .. as for newyears then i sure hope my professors can understand that i will not be attending a week before viva la anywhere but kuwait :D

you do not get it do you, that same week has eid elath7a, hence you can get a whole week off.

Talented kuwaities :)

purg. Eid Al-Adha is on a Monday. New Year on a Saturday. That leaves Sunday hanging in between. Not exactly a full week.

Of course if Ramadan was cut into 29 days which is the case always, then we'll have our Adha on the Sunday following New Year :D

Either way, I can't book anything for sure now :(
