I’m a people watcher.
For the last 3 years I’ve sat on a Golden Arrow bus like the one pictured above and I’ve watched people. Often there are new faces but mostly there’s the same steady stream of people getting to work and back.
I’ve seen ladies go from getting married to having a baby soon after. I’ve seen and heard men talk about divorce. I’ve watched toddlers that travel with their mom grow up and now they sit quietly and chat instead of cry.
It’s a load of fun. Often I make up lives for people. In my mind, the pretty girl who looks a bit like a runway model but dresses like a hippy, is the nicest person you’ll ever meet. (She just has that sort of face.) While the jerky awkward guy who keeps trying to chat Pretty Girl up is a real chop. (He, again, just has that sort of face.) Who knows if I’m correct or not? Maybe I’m completely off.
I know I’m not the only one who does this. We all have our little bit of entertainment when we travel. This is mine.
