June 25th, 9 a.m. or so London time, middle of the night in Chicago, Heathrow airport:

A hot shower with a fluffy white towel: 3 pounds (roughtly $6).

The chance to get utterly clean under pounding waves of hot water, to dry off, to brush your teeth and lotion your skin and change into clothes that aren't damp with ten hours of travel sweat, when you have ten hours still to go: priceless.
