Roundels & Wraps Not on the Underground

Weirdly after visiting
Chilango's great new burrito restaurant in Upper Street last night, I found that Jo T had sent me a wrap based Tube roundel she spotted in Frankfurt.

Wrap and More by Jonanamary

She said "I saw the following bagel/sundry baked goods shop in Frankfurt-am-Main Hauptbahnhof and thought of you!"

Robert McIntosh, also had a "saw this and thought of you" moment when he was on of his wine tours of Spain.

This is from Logroño in La Rioja wine region. However "Speakers Corner" seems to be a quite popular case for err.. borrowing the Tube roundel as it was spotted in Ghent in Belgium by Andrew:

Miles away from Europe, Dave P spotted the following roundel gracing a general store in Johannesburg.

Thanks to all who sent in the pictures and if you spot any other roundels not in their regular home on the Tube, please send them to me. I'll add the best to the ever growing Not on the Underground Flickr set.

Returning to Chilango, I just wanted to thank TikiChris and Qype for inviting me to a great night of Burritos and Tequila last night. I'm a big fan of Chilango having visited their Fleet Street branch with TrustedPlaces for a Day of the Dead party last year.

After quaffing a fair amount of good quality Tequila from Jose Cuervo, I'm hangover free, so the woman who was giving us some lessons in the art of Tequila tasting was right. More pictures on my Burrito & Tequila set.
