    Hi! I'm an undergrad and I'm going to London for a 2 months internship in the end of June. It would be great if you could answer these questions for me:
    1. Would a Nokia N72 from India work for sims in UK?
    2. What would you consider the cheapest sim for calling India? I found Vodafone quite interesting with 5 p per minute.
    3. Do you think a jeans jacket will do for the weather?
    4. As for rainfall, would you recommend a rain coat or an umbrella?
    5. Since I will be travelling by the Underground, should I go for the Oyster monthly or stick with plain Oyster Visitor?
    6. When I arrive at Heathrow, can I go by the Underground to the main city with all my luggage in tow?
    7. What would be the cheapest food available in Southwark (esp near King's College Guy's Campus) and Bounds Green (where I might be staying)?
