  8. Had a dream last night where the Crossrail Elizabeth Line opened on time and I was one of the first to ride it. Oh well, it's going to be well over a year late in the real world, sigh.
  9. Lots of new pictures! https://flic.kr/s/aHsmEBkYFF
  10. Depends. On a double decker, mostly the front row seats, preferably on the driver side. On a single decker, usually the rear window seats on the driver side so more of the road can be seen. On a single deck motorcoach, almost always the front row seats on the passenger side.
  11. Vegetable ramen at Auckland Airport domestic terminal. Very delicious.
