Rock the Bus

Apart from Fortaleza´s bus system being about as transparent as my skin currently is (i.e. not much), one thing I do like about them are the drivers´ willingness to share their musical tastes with the passengers. Some go for the obvious, like forro or samba. Others plump for the radio while another this morning opted for Coldplay´s latest offering. This afternoon however, I was taken back in time to 1990 and a badly advised period of fashion sense involving a shell suit and trainers. Yes, he had Roxette on, belting out ´She´s Got the Look´.

Just what you want when the bus is belting down the main street at a top speed of 35 miles an hour.

Expect we were sitting in the bus terminal. And we weren´t moving.
