Soundtrack to "Rollin in the streets"
'Right here Right now' by Fatboy Slim
|On top of the World|
|Waving to the kids of Lisboa|
|Portugese Students pause their hazing to wave|
|Headin' into the water|
|Rollin' down Avenida da Liberdade|
You'll find Open Top Double Decker buses at most of the world's popular tourist destinations. In Lisboa, Portugal it comes particular handy for the tourist traffic from the Cruise ships that dock near Alfama. Its an option that appeals to travelers who are in town briefly and want a quick overview of the city.
Personally its not how I choose to travel but I understand its appeal. On a casual Friday chilling at Parque Eduardo VII with a fellow traveler from Madison, Wisconsin. We spotted a promo bus advertising the upcoming Semana Académica (Student week) party headlined by Fatboy Slim. We humbly invited ourselves on the bus and they welcomed us aboard. It was a punk rock way to see one of my favorite cities.
Have you ever gotten a free ride? Where was it?
