My first double-decker bus. Yes, that's an ad for Night at the Museum, which we saw at the Odeon later in the week. They have the same dumb movies we do apparently.
This bus trip wasn't as fun as it should've been, because 1) I wasn't
on the top level looking out the front window, and 2) I was sitting
with one hand on the luggage to keep it from falling the whole time,
while my girlfriend was back a few seats doing whatever she was doing.
But, once I figured out I could keep the luggage pretty still with
my foot, in a way it was better than a train ride, because we got
to go through London rather than just whiz by it, or ride
the tube underneath it.
I spent a lot of time looking at things like TV antennas on roofs (or 'aerials' if you prefer. They all point the same way.), and speed limit signs, and McDonald'ses, and trying to reconcile driving on that side of the road and yet somehow not getting killed. That took pretty much the whole trip.
