Oyster card...
I am now the proud owner of a shiny new Oyster card. The world of Zone 1 & 2 is now my... er... oyster. The only slight downside that I have personally is that the Oyster card uses the same technology that my work card uses so sometimes they get a bit confused with each other.

Marky and I used them on the buses on Saturday night but strangely enough the routemaster buses (the ones that you get on at the back) don't seem to have the yellow and grey swipe stations. Consequently there was no way the conductor could tell whether the Oyster card we had was real or just a piece of cardboard. A loop hole I'd have thought.
