A word of admiration for the London cabbie

Tower Bridge Road to Soho, Morning rush hour. I could give you *my* route for the journey and it would be efficient enough; non-Londoners riding with me would admire how I found destination "D" from starting point "X" through the maze of streets. But my cabbie was something special; choosing Southwark Bridge was a Masterpiece, and using the backroads around the Royal Opera House rather than the more obvious Trafalgar Square brought me to where I was optimisically hoping to arrive at 08:45 ... fifteen minutes early at 08:30.

We provide equipment for each trainee to use when we're running private courses. "Provide a room and the students and we'll do the rest" is what we say. And it works well. Usually, customers are able to offer me a parking space of there's good parking nearby but in Central London it can be a bit of a nightmare. I can recall courses in the past where I had to unload across the bus stop at Moorgate station, and overlooking Trafalgar Square, and there's then the problem of how I get the equipment inside AND park up the car at the nearest (half a mile away ;-) ) car park. Hence my using the taxi this time - and it works well; hailed the cab at the hotel, quick, easy, and (the icing on the cake) cheaper than simply parking near here. An easy solution for the future. "Bring 'em on". Yes, please do ask me for a Perl course in the City, PHP on the Edgware Road, Python in Kensington on Linux in Soho. "Can do", and do well.

Plenty more pictures from London this week!
