The Past



The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

PhotoHunt - Public


Public is the word today and what better than Public Transport.

This rather old tram is wending it's way around the streets of Sofia in Bulgaria - a very cheap form of transport for the Public but a bit if a rickety ride ..

Maybe an old tram but it is still looking quite sleek and stylish and, more importantly, serviceable! Great shot!

why didn't I think of public transport? We don't have the trams anymore in Auckland.

I have never seen Bulgaria before. I think I would have to ride this at least once if I was visiting there. It looks like an adventure.

Is that a double decker bus? That is so cool! Have a great Saturday.

When I was little, there were still streetcars in Ottawa but they are long gone. Unfortunately, they were replaced with buses and now, of course, there is a move within the city to install light rail. Had they kept the streetcars, we'd already be a step ahead to having cleaner transportation.

These seem to be more modern than the ones I remember a few years back in Budapest.
