  Catch that bus!
by irisbe

It is funny, in my country the busses are running quite on schedule. When they stop to let passengers in, it goes all so fast that it is not worth running for the bus: it will be gone before you crossed the street.

But here, in UK, it is all so different!
I smiled when I saw all those people running but it took me only a few days before I did just exactly the same! It is worth running because people here still pay mostly with money, only a few have a card, so it takes a lot of time at each stop before the bus can go on.

Even VT member Azer told me a little secret: he sometimes stands a bit away from the bus stop so that he can run the little distance to keep in good condition `-)
