UK1994-Part1-London : Sloane Square Undergound

Here's the entry to the Sloane Square Underground (subway) station. London has an absolutely wonderful public transportation system - both trains (known as "the Underground") and busses, both of which are quite safe. We very rarely has the need to take taxis, although as we grew to knew the city better we tended to walk more.

Sloan Gardens, the street we lived on, fed into the square just to the left of this shot.

By the way, the term "Subway" in London refers to an underground pedestrian walkway - usually a means to cross a busy street via a tunnel, not the system of trains used to get around the city. I'm sure a lot of Americans have gotten quite confused following rather common signs pointing to a "Subway".
