Friday, June 8, 2018:  One last look around London before Mark and Paula headed back to Maidenhead, England.
First it was down escalators to the tube (subway).
Then it was onto a tube platform.
Tubes are very crowded sometimes, but very efficient and fast.
Train stations are run like an airport.  Huge scheduling boards give passengers times and gates.
The trains are almost always on time.  Very efficient.
Mark and Paula were greeted at Maidenhead by interesting signage and a statue near the River Thames.
This is a typical English town with narrow winding streets.
Homes are mostly brick on small lots with fences.
Only a few homes have a garage and that is for just one car.  Note the garage doors that swing open rather than rise up.
This man's pride and joy is a woody car.  Made in England in 1954, it is small by U.S. standards, but big by English standards.

Quote of the day:    They have everything.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
