Only in London....

The London Taxi Drivers' Fund for Underprivilged Children is a charity run voluntarily by the London Taxi Drivers themsels, to benefit all manner of underpriviliged children. Today, they hosted the Mad Hatters Tea Party in the Grand Ballroom of the Grosvenor Hotel, Park Lane, for hundreds of them. There were all manner of entertainers, and the kids had a thoroughly good time. That's one more thing that sets the London Black Cab Driver apart.

I just listened to the mp3 of the Girl On The Train. Loved it! Thank you so much for that.
And yes, those London Black Cab Drivers are certainly in a league of their own...

The absolute best cab drivers in the world and one of my favourite parts about visiting London.

Really cool capture! I love the costume and all (please tell me this IS a costume).

I really like what I call taxicab-tourism where you basically tell the driver to show you around for an hour or so. The drivers are usually full of insiders' information.

This guy (Professor Pip) has been entertaining at the taxi driver's childrens events for (in his words) ????? years - he's rather good at it.
