LONDON, Jan 11 (Reuters) - When Robert Reid last visited London from the United States for a short trip he stayed in an apartment he found on a "couch-surfing" site in the off-the-beaten north London suburb of Muswell Hill.
"I wanted to be at the place where The Kinks were from," says Reid. "The people were super and it gave me a great outlook on London and I appreciate the city more than I did before."
