Transport in London: Episode 5457

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

I’m on the tube, approaching Tottenham Court Road. It’s around 3:45pm, I skivved off work, so it is nice to be commuting with the touristas instead of the rat racers.  I manage to overhear this conversation above the mettalic rumbling that is the Northern Line.

A young American man with a Texan accent drawls  “So where’s all the good stuff, ya know, Buck-en-ham Palace, Big Ben?”

His female companion replies, smug as kittens,  “Oh yeah, that’s in Picadilly Square”.
