I like the tube more than the NY subway though, you’ve got cushioned seats.
I spend a lot of time in L.A., and I think it would probably be easier if I lived there work wise, but there’s no city like London, there is so much going on. I can jump on the Tube and be anywhere in 20 minutes, and all my friends and family are here and I’m not prepared to give that up.
