I know that I complain about MetroFAIL often but on days like today it’s not so bad taking the train.
Over the last 9 years I have met some interesting people and I have made friends, really good ones.
So this morning when I started chatting to a complete stranger it was clear that with all its troubles the train is a wonderful place.
Where else in the world you stand in the cold waiting for a train that is late again and then something as simple as “Can I borrow a light” will start a full on conversation that will last all the way to whatever station you get off.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I love taking the train.
