View From a London Bus

As a resident of London, I lived 2 minutes from the best bus route in the history of the universe, the number 9. I took that bus whenever I needed to get to Piccadilly, Trafalgar Square, Aldwych, Covent Garden, and sometimes when I had an extra hour to kill on my way to a market or home from work. The funny thing about the route is they sometimes run an old Routemaster from the Royal Albert Hall (my stop). It's cool, but a bit bumpy and smelly.



London buses, in general, are pretty top-notch. Any chance to sit up top, I would. I am a Bus Rider.




I decided to document a trip last week. Presenting...

Not a fan of the bendy bus, however.
