Going down, down, down


This is the underground, the little blue sign says keep to the right. This is because people who live and work in London run every where. It's quite strange to be going down, or up an escalator, to have people running past you, and I'm not talking fast walking here, I'm talking running. And another thing, this picture doesn't do it justice, but these escalators are frighteningly steep. Having said all that the underground is brilliant, getting from a to b couldn't be easier, and it's cheap too.

i have never in anything like that. i wonder if i would be feel a bit closed in or if being underground would feel caved in...i hope someday i get to find out by visiting such a place he, he..

i'm grateful that in the meantime, you have taken me to another side of London than the usual pics on tourist programs and movies. thanks friend.

Yikes. I fear I would be quite claustrophobic, as efficient as it certainly is.
