Public Transportation Is Sexy











Since I began reporting on my recent visit to London, I've heard several people profess their enthusiasm for London's cab drivers and fabulous restaurants. I wouldn't know anything about that. The devastating exchange rate rendered luxuries like taxis and fine dining out of the question. A significant portion of my trip was spent in grocery stores and on underground trains. I loved it. Leave it to a Kansas boy to find the Tube exciting. As this representative image suggests, the locals didn't seem to share my enthusiasm.

    And they're not kidding around, are they, Panos? I have a couple representative snapshots that I'll eventually post on my photo blog.

    heh... love the Underground. Always my principal transportation when visiting London.

    For my money the map of the Tube is still the best piece of mapping design (if you know what I mean) ever. It makes the excitement of the Tube so accessible.

    The Underground map holds a place of distinction hanging over the stairs to my basement.
