No good deed goes unpunished. In Neil Gaiman’s “Neverworld”, the protagonist falls through the cracks of the everyday world to The London subway unknown to most where he encounters an alternate shadow universe peopled by magic, monsters and good and evil characters.
his fault and descent is pushed upon him by one good deed in stopping to help a stranger.
Although we avoided both the good deed and the dramatic results, experiencing the Tube is a quintessential experience with both auditory and visual impact.
Our trip included a very few stops along the oldest subway but we enjoyed rapid transit, steep stairs, escalators and lifts. And of course “minding the gap”….
and even above ground, there more than enough interesting and exotic beings.
