With six months left before moving on from England to Vietnam,
I start to notice the little things. Normally, when I step off the London Tube,
my first glance goes to the direction of the 'Way Out' sign.
You have to act quick to make sure you slot into the pace of the masses.
Yesterday, I stepped out of the tube and stopped. Lucky for me it was a quiet morning.
There was something about this sign that made me want to reach out and hug it.
I should mention, that when moving countries is on the horizon, one tends to get emotional.
I take that as a good sign as it heightens ones interest and makes you
appreciate everything around you...even a sign in a tube stop. :)
I stepped off at Russell Square, and thought how much I enjoy
seeing the older Tube stops. The ones that have not been swept into the Olympic frenzy.
I like to think Russell Square and others like it will stay just as they are.
I was on my way to the Charles Dickens Museum. In addition to being
mad about Sherlock Holmes, I am equally enamoured with the life
and times of Charles Dickens. I have lots to share on that front...soon.
