By the way….
My blog is worth $358,482.90.
How much is your blog worth?
They charged him for having a fake watch? That’s so not right!
That video makes me twitch. I’m slightly claustrophobic and the thought of being crammed in there makes me nervous :)
Look forward to seeing more pictures of your book.
What a great book project – keep us posted!
I think they treated him just right!
I love public transportation, but it seams a bit overcrowded in Tokyo at least for a Norwegian. I mean they have more people in one train than we have in all our trains for a whole day in Oslo :-)
I didn’t know you could be busted for owning a fake watch. That’s kind of weird. Is that common in Europe?
I like the idea of the road map inside and the info page too….the pics are great….
that video was un believable Diane !!!!…I suppose they wouldn’t bother ironing their clothes…….very claustophobic…. :0
I’ve never heard of people being charged for wearing fake jewellery .after being mugged as well ..so absolutely ridiculous…..
poor man !!
oops ….meant claustrophobic
I wonder if I could get some space with the use of wind power …….
Paul – I can think of nothing worse than travelling on a train that crowded. How on earth do you get off when you arrive at your destination? I’m having palpitations just thinking about it!
Renny – it is a good project and it’s making me think very hard – which can only be a good thing!
No! Poor man! After the fright of being mugged and then he gets into trouble and the mugger gets away? Can’t be right!
I think I prefer travelling in Norway to Tokyo in that case :-)
Justin – I know they are clamping down on people selling fakes but didn’t know they clamped down on people who own them….
Kim – glad you like the book – prototype number 1 :-)
It is claustrophobic and I don’t even suffer from it! They must look like badly packed parcels by the time they get to work!
I agree – poor old man!
DP – that would do it! Clear a carriage in no time I’m sure!
Happy bloggy birthday! Wishing you many more :-)
Hi there, just dropping by to say Hello,
I found your blog from the Big Bang Master List.
Have a nice day.
I will never, never, ever complain about my packed rush hour train again !!!!! That is horrendous …….
faizal- hello! Glad to see you here! A fellow Manchester United supporter! We are doing well at the moment aren’t we? I was born in Manchester so I am one of the few ‘home grown’ supporters!
70steen – it’s dreadful isn’t it? Imagine having to do that every day…..
Oh Diane you don’t support Utd… I will have to stop visiting lol
I live in Manchester but I am from Liverpool so you will know how difficult that is !!
The rush hour trains up here now are not far from the one on the clip (we don’t have ‘shovers on’ but they say on the loud speaker thingy.. ‘move along so more can get in’ .. hey I can’t move my limbs as it is and those who are seated ‘tut’ because their space is invaded slightly!) I have made it my aim to adjust my work schedule so i travel on the less packed trains …… envying you in rural Dorset :)
Ooh! Could get interesting in the Champions League… I’m guessing you support Liverpool then….or maybe Everton!
Yes, it certainly seems less crowded down here although I moved away from Manchester over 30 years ago so I guess it has changed quite a bit since then….
Diane, I like the map-paper you took for the endsheets! Did you print it yourself, or is that a bought paper? I love the look of old maps – I own an antique atlas full with old-time maps … I think I should post about it in my blog …
I scanned a map of my home town and then printed it onto A3 paper. It came out really clearly – I was surprised!
I can sit and read an atlas for hours – they are fascinating. I think that’s why I like my Clustr map so much. A few weeks ago, my friend and I spent ages working out where some of the dots in the middle of the ocean were….
Love the idea of the book project. Been looking through your blog and really enjoyed reading your posts.
Thanks! I enjoyed reading yours too. I used to live in Minworth which if I remember correctly wasn’t too far from Castle Bromwich – over 20 years ago though!
I’m so sorry you were mugged. My mom was too, and it’s such a traumatic experience. It takes a long time to stop feeling violated.
I quite like the look of old maps on books.
Everytime I see the Japanese subway “shove” system, I cringe. I like to hug and touch people I know, but with strangers, I very much prefer a wide personal space. :}
The worst of it was my passport was in the bag – and I was due to fly home the next day and fly out to Paris for my 25th wedding anniversary the following weekend so I had to spend a lot of time form filling and queuing up to get a new passport.
Then my handbag turned up with passport but minus money, cards etc…..
As for the subway – cosy in the winter but in the summer!! :-)
