Riding the Bus Again

Riding the Bus to the Children's MuseumLast week we took a family trip to the Children’s Museum. Lexi had a blast and spent most of her nap telling her stuffed bear everything she did.

I think one of my highlights was riding the bus (it was also one of Lexi’s highlights). I used to ride the bus to work every day and loved it. I talk about this all the time, but I think public transportation is great. I like to drive, but it’s just as nice to sit back and let someone else do the driving. You get a chance to interact with people and see things you just can’t see when you’re concentrating on the road.

It sounds goofy, but I just feel more connected to humanity when I actually interact with them. Even if it’s just a quick nod and smile, it’s more than staring at someone’s bumper.

I think Lexi and I will be taking the bus more often.

  1. Maybe buses here are different than they are in Israel. A vast majority of Israelis use public transportation on a daily basis. I always hated riding the bus. Everytime I have visited Israel, as an adult, I gladly paid a little extra for a cab.

  2. So, what was so bad about the buses in Israel? Just curious.

    As far as riding the bus here – totally love it! Best way to not have to fight traffic, pay parking fees, look for a parking spot and it apparently appears to be the highlight of the outing for Lexi.

  3. Go family bus! I love taking the bus with my family. We can interact in a way that is impossible while trying to drive. Contact with humanity? I think I’ll have to blog on that one too…

  4. That is true, Paul, sometimes the human contact isn’t exactly the kind you want. But more often than not I had good interactions, or at least though provoking ones.
