After a long walk through more and more boring areas of the town, I took a bus to get back to my hotel. The reflection of the light on the plastic seats showing the curved shape of the back rests arrested my eye but it was only a moment later that I noticed what was behind the windows. Nature versus industrial man designed machine. And the look of machines in America is much cruder than in Europe where engineers most often try to conceal the machine by some decoration coatings. Here, nothing of the sort, just function. From the seats to the windows no effort is made to transform the machine into a visually pleasant space. And in fact, that is precisely what makes it pleasing. I like these aluminium framed windows designed to be strong and last long. The string running along the top of the windows to be pulled in order to signal the driver you want to stop is another practical feature. No need to move to where the stop button is. You can do it from anywhere along the cabin. The advice signs are also no frill, everything seems to have a purpose.
