“The bus is coming,” works well with yesterday’s phrase! It’s always a fine balance between being early for the bus but not being so early that you stand around waiting forever! We used to take the bus all the time when we were living in Europe. Their public transportation system is very well organized, so we enjoyed taking it!

Have you gone on a trip abroad and used their public transportation system? How did it go?
