Just got back from a week in England. Spent the first half in Brighton and the second half in London. It was wonderful to visit and I highly recommend it. From a piper perspective it was interesting. Tobacco was outrageously expensive. I paid 20L for 2 oz of tobacco. I bought some 1820 and a flake just to say I bought some there. James J Fox is an amazing shop. The Dunhill shop was disappointing...they had some Dunhills, all small. I've always wanted to go to London and see the factory and buy a pipe. Well, I couldn't see a factory or find a pipe I wanted to I splurged online for a new pipe (I always buy estates when I can) to commemorate the trip. Now I just have to wait for it to arrive.
