Waiting for the Train in Chicago

Many years ago in August 2003 I was waiting for the L in Chicago to bring me to work.

193 steps to Covent Garden

193 steps to covent garden

193 steps, but they’re all going up. We arrived in the Underground station at Covent Garden in the middle of the day when queues for the elevators up were *sooo* long. Actually, I didn’t know this at all. I had dawdled behind taking a few photos and recognised a few faces darting down a side tunnel so I followed them. As I ran after them I snapped the warning sign that read,

This stairway has 193 steps
Do not use
except in an
emergency

Filled with a resignation that it must be the only way I followed them up.

Oh my God. My knees were like jelly by the time I saw sunlight. I never want to do that again. Next time we wait patiently for the elevator.

PS. My brother and I and our future brother-in-law Mike left London yesterday, but Donal is still in the city, and last I heard, was tucking into some spicy food at a Chinese restaurant! Great weekend!
