Beat the traffic, take to the water
Have you missed my first Yellow water taxi ? Here is Taxi 2, the sequel. Been sitting in the traffic for what seems ages, haven't moved an inch? Use a water taxi and beat the traffic! Today is a City Daily Photo theme day and if you want to see what taxis look like all over the world click on any of the participating sites below. Bet none of them gets such a fast run as my yellow water taxi! For another angle, see Sally's entry today Water taxi, Darling Harbour.
Re websites below, one of the most interesting in my opinion is the last (St Paul, MN, USA) for the comment about muslim taxi drivers refusing to take people carrying alcohol. Will they soon also refuse to carry single women not accompanied by a male relative? This sets a precedent for future dangerously divisive paths. The cutest is number 28 (look for the Oct 1st entry)...
