That Rosslyn Metro Smell

Has anyone else noticed the horrid whiff that you get descending into the Rosslyn station? It smells like burning asbestos, like so many worn-out clutches I dealt with in my youth. The acrid smell permeates the whole place and I never know which is worse – breathing through my nose or mouth.

On the bright side, at least it smells better than Jeremy Bentham’s corpse. I hope.

Have you noticed that smell at Rosslyn? What images does it convey for you?

    Carl – everything about the metro smells to me, but I did notice today that there was water everywhere at the bottom of metro. They had it half blocked off, then on the way home there was a dude half into the ceiling fixing stuff…

    Did they find an old turkey sandwich or something?
