I love the subway system. I love that one can go nearly everywhere using public transpiration in this city. I can’t say I have learned anything about where I am, since we are usually underground (we do get to go up on the Manhattan bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan … everyone pulls out cell phones at that point because you can actually communicate and check email then).

One thing I’ve noticed, though, is that so many people look weary and sad on trains. There is very little eye contact. One would think no one liked life or trusted a soul. Of course it’s sort of that way, too, in an elevator, and when we are commuting by car we don’t even think about this since we don’t make eye contact with anyone (well, there IS road rage ….).

In any case, when I saw this video it made me smile, as it made the few non-cast members in the train smile a little bit.
