I’m on the Euro Star on my way to London. Well, we’re supposed to be heading there but we’re standing still in the middle of nowhere due to a train in front of us having some sort of (technical?) difficulties. The rails at this spot are not level so we’re hanging over a bit to the left. To make this little uncomfortable situation even a bit more uncomfortable I’m in a coach with a bunch of Dutch high school kids on a trip. Let’s just say that they are verbally strong and overactive.
My sidekick on this trip handed me an iPhone with Angry Birds so I can have a go at this blasting pigs to get some eggs back.
The Euro Star needs a haul over I think. The wagons are a bit worn out and are starting to show their age. As to the promise of fast travel … well at the moment I’m not very impressed with this high speed as we’re standing still … now we’re moving as I type this at cycling speed … and now we’ve stopped again. Right …it’s like being on a local commuting train that stops in every village.
No need for the telco industry to worry about mobile internet business. The Internet on trains doesn’t seem to have taken off.
So I’m at the hotel. 1,5 hours later than planned. I’m off the register and attend the welcome reception at BriForum next. Sunny day in London, that’s always nice.
