London round-up

Just wanted to share some of my thoughts on my trip to London with you guys.

  • “mind the gap”: this subway-system rocks ! Has a really nice “user interface”, has good service and is just easy to use. One downside is that it can get pretty darn crowded in the more compact “mole-trains”.
  • fish, chips and a cup’o’tea: food wasn’t as bad as I expected, I’ve always loved the English Breakfast so the mornings were a real treat. Lot’s of fast food, though, ranging from McDonalds and Burger King to greasy Curry and other Indian treats. And another thing: the English barely touch their food! At breakfast (not just tourists, also locals) people came back with heaps of horrid or just plain wrong food-combinations from which they proceeded to only eat 3 bites and then left it all to be thrown in the bin … ridiculous !
  • Skaramoosh, skaramoosh, will you do the fandango ?: I saw an awesome musical at the Dominion Theatre: “We will rock you”. It’s about how in the year 2500 all music on the planet is made by computers and dictated by the “Killer Queen” from the “Globalsoft” company. Wouldn’t want to spoil it for you … but just make sure you go see it if you’re passing through London.

More to come …

    FYI: the subways in London are underground passages to get to the other side of the street (e.g. Marble Arch). Only Americans use the word subway.
    The underground transport system is called the Tube or simply “The Underground”.

    This will help you not to look like a nitwit on your next trip.

    @ Mike:

    Thanks for the heads-up but I was aware of the fact that it is called the underground/the tube. Subway is, however, a general term for railway transportation under the ground.

    So let me rephrase that … “this subway-system is great”.

    Underground, to me, is specifically linked to the London tube and can not be used to describe … let’s say the system in Brussels, for example.

    I’m not even going to reply on your nitwit comments.

    Thanks for your 2 cents … but don’t be a nitpicker.
