Going underground

Being from Amsterdam, having studied in Amsterdam, having to take the Amsterdam metro a lot, I always thought of metro stations as eerie places. So taking the metro, I considered that as necessary evil.
Metro stations in Amsterdam were places where you’d have to be careful not to take the wrong exit, or you would trip over some junkie, or worse: slip over a used condom or needle.

Luckily, times have changed. For Amsterdam, but apparently for other metro stations as well. Can you imagine my surprise when I was in Gare Lille-Europe, taking the long escalators down, finding these gorgeous murals there?
