Public transport is not something we have around here. On a couple of occasions I have seen a large bus on our road carrying children to their school camp at Tangihua Lodge in the forest but I've been too busy getting out of their way on the narrow, dirt road to worry about a photo. But there is a regular little school bus with the telltale sign of its travels. I don't think this is it, ours is a little smaller but you can see it services a similar road.
It's quite different from its big brother in the city:
My form of public transport this week was the plane. This wasn't the one, as I departed just after dark but it was the same size. It might not be very big but it covered the 350 kms (217 miles) from Auckland to New Plymouth in 25 minutes and that's better than a 4 - 5 hour drive.
I'm a bit late joining FSO this week, only got back home an hour or so ago. The rest of the team will have their shots here.
