Wednesday 28.January

London, (Overground) Tube Station (darkness at 6.45h)

St Pancrass at eight in the morning.

EVERYone on that train went to Disneyland Europe. Except me. And I nearly did as well, because I very, very nearly missed the stop at Lille. No announcement whatsoever, my clock had stopped, and the downstairs bit of Lille station outside my window looked like rough tunneling. Guess that's modern 'A'rchitecture. As ususal, function over form doesn't actually function all that well.
