Buses

September 20, 2019

Have you ever noticed how noisy it can get on a London bus? #Londoners get used to it quickly when they have to commute the same route daily, although they will complain to you occasionally that the train is much better, or how much they need to get their driving license so they can get away from the “bus orchestra”.

 

What do I mean by the “bus orchestra”? Mainly that the top deck of every bus in the evening becomes a holy place for each of those who need to call home.  Just get on a bus at night, and you will hear languages that you never knew existed.  Everybody on the phone; you wonder what network affords such long #conversations overseas. The #amazing thing is that they don’t seem to disturb each other one bit. Everyone is excited as they finally kick away the inconvenience of the language of this land and let their native speech flow. Soon enough, you learn not to let it disturb you either.  Afterwards, you find you even learnt some foreign language through your commuting.
