Cambridge — It was a perfect day in Boston. A little too warm for what I was wearing (the weather said thunderstorms! I looked like a silly person in a sweater and boots in the 26°C sun.)

Milton Keynes station: Gateway to a Stepford world; Apocalyptic.
Somehow always a wonderful place to pause and breathe for a moment... Before diving into the Tokyo underground ;)
Commuting by train. People are passing through the brand new electronic gate. Yes, new, do you see queuing people there?
Commuting by train in Singapore. Was a great experience. Short wait to next train. Map is very easy to understand.
Commuting by train in Malaysia was a bit better
Yale students and New Haveners wait for trains to New York at the end of the semester
Night always arrives too quickly.
Pausing briefly to catch some sun before the next train.
Waiting for the 18:52 at Benfleet.
