AW80D: London Part 1

Statue

If New York City is the big apple, what large fruits or foods might the other great cities of the world be? Is London the giant mushy pea? (Actually, it’s The Old Smoke, but who’s counting anyway?) Considering the damp and general grayness (sound familiar?) which leads to brilliant green grasses, it might not be the most inaccurate moniker. Especially since The Emerald City is already taken.

One particular aspect of London that Dolphie focused on during his stop there was the transportation. The big red buses, the black cabs, the underground (aka the tube, which looking at the picture in the slideshow below now makes perfect sense)—I don’t quite get why, but London’s means of getting around sure seem to have a habit of becoming iconic.

If you were a Londoner, how would you prefer to get around?

(Two things: 1 – AW80D stands for Around the World in 80 Dolphies, wherein we follow the international adventures of Dolphie, mascot of Shoreline Community College; 2 – Credit where credit’s due, so thanks Wikipedia and the Daily Mail, and if you’d like to see where I got my information, just click the links.)
