Tonight in the tube

People in London don’t talk on the tube. Yet, an elderly person did. We chatted about the cramped decision on the tube and whether I did that every day.

I said: I did. Crazy, he said.

When asked for my accent and where I was from, someone else got involved.

In a slight English accent but perfect German he said: My wife is from Paderborn; this is about 30 minutes from my home town.

A small place this earth.

A nice place this London.

I thought this was worth sharing.

Cheers,
Volker
