Letters to, from, and about Railway Systems.

Dear Sydney Subway System,
You are so darn cool, we really really wish we were like you. You know how you can flip your seats so your passengers can sit facing either direction (oh my goodness - that is sooo cool) well here in Chicago we are trying to be like you. Look at the above picture, our seats move too!!! How cool are we? Okay okay, no you can't switch the seats to be facing the other direction but, we can move the seat up and out of the way for handicap access. Should the seat be up like that right now? Well, no, but gosh Sydney you guys are so cool we just want to be like you and well let's face it - this is all we got, so we might as well flaunt it, right?
With love and admiration,
Chicago Subway System


Dear Chicagoans,
Have you ever noticed that there always seems to be a Dunkin' Donuts right next to all "El"* stops? Well I sure noticed and I decided to snap this picture while waiting for the train at the Bryn Mawr Redline stop. Can you find the Dunkin' Donuts?
Sincerely,
Sami
*To all non-Chicagoans the "El" is what we call the subway system here in Chicago. It is actually developed from shortening the word elevated, as you can see from this picture many subway stops in Chicago are elevated.

There are TONS of Dunkin Donuts in Sydney too - they're EVERYWHERE!!! I'm originally from utah where there are like 2 donut shops in the entire valley - so it always throws me for a loop at how popular the places are.

Ooh - I love Sydney's public transportation - I had never taken public transportation until moving to Sydney but yeah - once I started (and got over the shock ;) I realized how wonderful it is!!!
