Been there a few times. Great city for vacations, but it seems horrible to live in. Every single house or apartment looks the fucking same from the outside, and it's just weird and depressing.
Dumb story, but when I first went to meet Cross, I took the train from York to King's Cross, and he was out in Heathrow Airport. He was landing early in the morning, and the last train arrived there around midnight. No problem, I figured, I'll just bring some snacks and drinks and a book and wait for a few hours. Well, turns out the Tube closes at night, just around the time I arrived. So what do I do? Well, I walk.
Now, if you look at a map of London, from King's Cross to Heathrow, you should immediately see why this was a bad idea. But I figured, I had 6 hours or so, might as well spend them. So I walked. I walked pretty far. I got down to Hyde Park, found a hotel I once stay at with my family which was fun, and kept walking and walking. Eventually, the neighborhoods got pretty damn sketchy. Pretty sure I walked past the beginning of a murder at one point. Then it got industrial.
Eventually, I reached the roundabout out by the Saudi Embassy, and I took a bus the rest of the way because I was exhausted. Meeting up was also a bitch, because there were three planes from New York coming in at that time, and I picked the wrong one to wait for. Cross managed to get onto Ponychan, where he made a thread asking for someone to message me, which Daxam did, through Skype, on my phone which was at, like, 8% battery.
That was a wild night.
