No, I'm not on strike. The London Underground is on strike. And that is quite bothersome. To say the least. Because the group I'm taking to London was supposed to be doing everything by Underground today. I would just drop them off at the Tower of London around 10/10.30 am and pick them up tonight at around 10.30 pm. Instead I had to race at a snail's pace through London to get to the parking lot in time for me to rest nine hours (European Driving Laws). I managed, but an hour from the London Eye to Bayswater (it's less than 5 km/3 miles) is just ridiculous.

We did manage to get to Chelsea FC on time though and even London Eye was reached on time! Tomorrow I'm supposed to be doing a tour of the town. Dreading it already!

So, instead of walking through an unknown area of town, I'm now blogging, all due to the (very fitting for today) Underground... Since I'm not going to walk all the way to the other side of the city (I had Greenwich in mind, but that's over 15 km/10 miles). I will have some dinner, buy some books and go back to my coach watching the chaos that is parking lot.


  1. I read about this in today newspaper, it looks chaotic! hopefully things will be back to normal soon.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
