Tube Relief: Post-event meet up

We met up at The George on the corner of Mortimer Street and Great Portland Street. It is about one minute away from Oxford Circus tube station.

Actually both of us met Geoff, Neil, Annie and Helene at the Starbucks in Borders book store on Oxford Street. Small world. I do not read The Economist by the way.

Chris, Sam and Steve. Sam managed to collect £1500 for Tube Relief. Well done! Chris also won an award for best injury. He was taking a picture when the famous London Underground sliding doors smacked his face!

Post-event thoughts: We both had a wonderful time during Tube Relief Challenge and the post-event meet up at The George. I can honestly say that I will be doing this again. Jenni's not too sure but I will try to change her mind. We need to do all 274 stations next year!

I am still a little too tired to write up Thursday's report. I will leave that to Jenni.

BTW, next time I am in Malaysia I will do the whole KL metro system.

Nice one! Cheers for the trouble! The Hitchcock mosaics is a real treat. I will definetly visit Leytonstone just to get some pictures of those mosaics.

Can't wait for the Neverwhere film.
