A Conversation for London Underground - Piccadilly Line: West of Leicester Square
Neither underground nor in the city
AgProv2 Started conversation Dec 1, 2006
The last time I stayed in London I was dossing with a friend in Uxbridge.
It was a bit dislocating to take the "underground" to Wembley, which is where we needed to be every day, to discover that
out of Uxbridge:
i) There weas no such thing as an underground - all the trains ran above ground level like normal trains on normal track; and
ii) This is London? Biggest city in Europe? So what's all that green stuff out there, then, stretching as far as the eye can see, with big greyinsh things in it alternately going "mooo" and scarfing grass? Those are fields with cows in, this is countryside, THIS is the London Underground?
Is this some kind of fiendish surrealism designed to confuse visitors?
Good posting, though, although it peters out long before it gets to Uxbridge.
