The bus ride home

We approach the Barrière de Pessac.

A guy runs into the road in front of the bus and waves his arms wildly. The bus driver considers his options... and stops the bus.

"Ah merci, merci..."

"Vous avez bu, quand même ?"

"Ouais, un peu, mais on est gentil, y'a pas de problème"

The two men get on the bus and talk happily at the back. (Bordeaux won 4-0 against Bruges)

The bus driver kept one eye on them as he drove, but there was no problem.

We approach Pessac centre.

The 4 going the other way honks and stops.

"Y'a'n accident. Il est sous la bagnole !" "Quoi, les pizzas ?" "Ouais"

We continued and sure enough at Pessac Centre there are scenes of sadness. A pizza delivery scooter-lad has gone too fast through the roadworks and ended up underneath a car. We see the aftermath. Lots of folk stood around cars and talking it all through.

The bus driver lives in terror of the scooter-lads. They're a real menace !

I get home safely after a rich and full day and put arnica gel on my arm !
