  1. Added to my TBR list. I have been in London and have used the Tube. Also I might might check on the one in Paris. I think it is called the Metro.
    Thanks for the info.

  2. I already have this one on my wish list. I love the idea of going and exploring the world beneath fascinating London, the number one city on my list to someday visit!

  3. We just got back from London. I would have loved to have read this in preparation for the trip. It sounds interesting enough to read anyway, but it might make me too sad that it'll be a long time before I'll be able to get back!
