A bomb threat? Wow, that's something you can tell your grandchildren :-) But I can surely understand the being stopped on the line and the claustrophobic experience. Rest assured you were not the only one who didn't feel comfy at that time. Luckily nothing happenend.
I always used the tube but lost my nerve when I was stuck one day by a bomb threat. The train stopped on the line, no air conditioning and hundreds of people all in that underground tunnel! Heat bothers me and I get claustrophobic, so lots of walking and short cab rides. I lived in London off and on for a year and like you visited many times. Like lots of places, London is changing and I really don't care for cities too much anyway. They certainly did a first class job with the Olympics though!
I'm sure glad you like the puzzle and London, Robbiel. I just luuuuv it, but frankly, I wouldn't want to live there. Been there about 30 times (even guided some groups through London) but the last time I was there was in 2002. Way too long ago. Should you ever go back, may I advise you to do some of the London walks (brochuren can be found anywhere, if that organization still exists). The Jack the Ripper walk is very spooky, but recommendable. I also enjoyed the Beatles walk. I rarely took a cab, Maybe three or four times.. Always hopped down the tube.
What a gorgeous panorama starlord. It is quite a city but Jenny and I agree that we don't have to go back. We were there in june and feel that the character is changing, lots of it look tired and even Harrod's displays were not very interesting but VERY expensive! The best service we had were from black cab drivers, they still live up to their name by getting you somewhere the quickest and safest way. Four drivers were Londoners and one from Lebanon, but all were polite, witty and good drivers.
Anyway a very enjoyable puzzle, thanks.
It is a beautiful city
London is still the greatest city I've ever seen. And I did see quite a few in three continents.
