Don't get out much eh?

UC Berkely senior Bryan Goodwin, a history major, had these observations about gettting around in London. He found English public transportation, except the Underground, more accessible than in the states. But he also observed in this UCBerkelyNews.com article that he rarely saw other people in wheelchairs during his year studying abroad. "In England, disabled people don't go out, which culturally was very weird for me," he admitted. The rest of the article, outside of the travel observations, is well worth a read by the way if you'd enjoy a story about a person who, in his own words, is "concentrated, but ... not intrinsically different."
