Public

20 Nov ’09

Transport I mean. Yup, like in the buss or the tram or the train. Actually I used the tram to go to work today. It’s been a while since I did that, and I don’t really liked doing it either this time. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great if you want to read a book or listen to a podcast, radio,… or so. But the time it takes for me to get to work from home with the tram….. (buss is not an option for me). It will take me about 45 minutes. And if I do it on a bike, about 20 minutes. So you see my point: I loose about 50 minutes a day by using public transport. And then I am not even talking about the pricetag…..

But one thing I liked about it this morning, was that the city was dark and just about to wake up. Lights are coming on everywhere, so you can have a clear look inside houses. Which reminds me about the trips we did with my parents on a Saturday or Sunday evening. We would usually drive around for 30 minutes or so on our way home from my grandparents. Instead of driving straight home (10 minutes tops), we would make a big detour. Sometimes we would take the same route as the weekend before, but most of the time we would change it a bit somehow. And that is when we looked. We could see inside other people’s homes. I just loved it, all those different styles and colours. Sometimes I wonder if we will do the same with Zeb and Milla. Who knows.

So public transport has a positive side as well. Who would have thought that…
