Is this the bus to Cartagena?

Took my first bus trip into the centre (of the centre) on Saturday. I managed to avoid buses in NYC for a full five years and am still somewhat traumatized by the bus race I participated in (as an unwilling passenger) last Sunday on the way back from church.
How's My Driving? Call 1800-PANIC.


Of course, customary etiquette in such situations is customarily dispensed with by the locals and - not wanting to be an estranho myself - I naturally participated in the ugly free-for-all necessary to get a seat: jostling, nudging, and (only if strictly necessary) elbowing aside the frail and needy.

Well, it was my day off.
