Yesterday I decided to give one of the bus challenges a go.

I could possibly have timed my trip a bit better, I stopped after the fifth bus not because I had enough of waiting on bus stops or had to be somewhere else but because it was late afternoon in the city and my busses were just not moving at all any more.



I started at Finsbury Park Station and the first bus that came by was the 106 to Whitechapel. I'd picked the number 7 but stop seven was a one line stop so I continued on to the first stop that had multiple lines serving it. That was Stoke Newtington Station.

Five minutes later I was on the next bus, this one a 149 to London Bridge. South it went, past the Aziziye Mosque (originally built as a cinema as wikipedia tells me) and the 7th stop was at the Rio Cinema.

Busses kept coming really quickly and less than a minute later I was on the next one, the 76 to Waterloo. This one changed destinations after three stops and instead was only going to go to Hoxton, but my 7th stop was before that at Downham Road. The next bus coming along was a 76 to Waterloo *again* but I got on anyway.

Short bit along the Regent's Canal, across and the seventh stop was City Road/Leonard Street. Traffic was getting a bit slow already, but I decided to try one more bus. 21 to Lewisham Shopping Centre it was.

But that one was winding its way through the city before even getting close to crossing the river and after getting from Liverpool Street Station to Bank took nearly 15 minutes I decided to stop my excursion at the 7th stop - King William Street/Monument Station.

It was a fun trip, but possibly not the best time xD

Yes, waiting on a bus to cross a bridge during the rush hourS isn't especially fun, although I suppose it's as good for people watching as most other places. I especially like your question mark shaped map = ?
