You never know what’s going to come next on the good ol’ metro. It adds a certain amount of unpredictability to my day/life, or that’s how I choose to see it anyway. Its a good way to avoid feelings of resentment and anger about having to spend so much time (and money) on public transport. You will never be bored if you learn to enjoy people-watching.
