London Underground

Up from the Underground, LondonDon’t believe everything you read about ticket machines and windows. The smaller stations, such as Mansion House, only has a machine, and that was only taking cards and coins, not cash.

I intended to use up my pond notes, so I would not have to pay twice for currency conversion, having planned this out in advance. The kind controller at the station, after much discussion about how far I would need to walk to find a human operated ticket window, let me through the barrier with his pass. “Just go all the way to Kew,” he said, ” and buy your pass for Zone 5 there. If they give you trouble, tell them to call Mansion House, that the machine there is not working.” this makes him the first really friendly person I’ve met in London.
