FRIDAY AUGUST 8th (ignore the blog date above)

Hot, hot, hot (re-visited)

Yes it's hot in London, it's hotter on the tube. More sweat, high quota of Birkenstock sandals spotted. A bit more taste in the "I'm so hot I must wear as few clothes as possible" fashionista also spotted. Large number of nice strappy tops on women. Men you're lagging behind.

Yesterday due to various heat related delays I was expected to wait twenty minutes for a Central Line train. I thought the dox matrix indicator below was a joke and waited a minute to see if the flashing lights CORRECTION would come up and waited to be re-assured with the normal five or six minute wait. Sadly there were no CORRECTIONS and no reassurance. Luckily camera was in hand to record one of the longest breaks between trains in central London I have seen.

You are seriously aving a larf mate

I got a bus instead.
