Some Travel Pictures Just Beg For an Explanation

Mind The GapI took this picture in a tube station in London. “Mind the Gap” is a common warning posted throughout the underground system and blasted from audio speakers continuously. Although I understand the purpose of the warning, I could never figure out why every-other sign is mounted upside-down. One local suggested that it was so the sign could be read if you fall onto the tracks. Hopefully, he was just joking.

Walking Around Ybor City

Like many major metropolitan areas, the historic Ybor City section of Tampa is pretty quiet in the early morning. You will find a few people arriving for work at one of the local handmade cigar factories, restaurant workers setting up for the day or those still cleaning up from the night before. It’s a great time to walk around the streets and check out some of the colorful sights of this Cuban-influenced area.
