Decide that the back seats are better (but it is hard getting upstairs), but you put it on the back of the top deck for the 47 to Catford Bus Garage.

This Kayak is fun! Can we use it sometime before we get rid of it?

This is the 10th post since the kayak arrived, so it needs to go somehow.

185 to Vauxhall Bridge and then throw the kayak off the bridge and jump into it. Luckily you land in the kayak, not the Thames! Then you go for a ride in the kayak before you hit another boat and the kayak gets destroyed.

I didn't say exactly 10 posts, it was more an "at least"...

Anyway, at Madame Tussauds, you choose not to visit the ridiculous overpriced waxworks, instead walking down to the Royal Academy of Music, and going inside.

Added a 10 post minimum stipulation to the chello - see my last post!

Get some funny stares when you wheel a chello to the bus stop, and get the driver annoyed at you so you miss the first bus. Get the next 16W to West Bromwich Bus Station.

You and your cello wander down to West Bromwich Central on the Midland Metro, and busk for a bit.

Get a Midland Metro towards Birmingham New Street, but get thrown off at the next stop, Trinity Way as your chello is an obstruction!

London Midland to Liverpool Lime Street. This time the cello gets to sit in the luggage compartment as the train is full.
