MORNING - Saturday 12th January

Not a normal commuting entry, I don't normally go to work on Saturday, but had to be in Blackheath for work reasons and ended up getting the tube to Charing Cross. The tube is almost a joy on Saturday early mornings. Not many people on it. The district line rarely does it's normal f**k up of stopping between stops and the drivers have their tour operator heads on. Got off at Embankment to the almost cheerful announcement of "Change here for the London Eye, Trafalgar Square and Westminster". Most train driver announcements are dull and bored "stand clear of the doors", "mind the gap" sort of things which is why the
humorous driver announcement section of my main site has gone ballistic.

Absolutely huge party of Japanese tourists got on a few stops up from me and were poured out at Embankment. Were actually quite unusual for Japanese tourists as not a camera visibly in sight and none of those strange Michael Jackson stylie masks on either.
