|The Number 1 at Acock's Green|
I've wanted to ride the number 1 for some time, so today, after moving the boat to St. Vincent Street's 14-day moorings (the pub at Cambrian Wharf having proved too noisy after all), I walked up to Broad Street and caught one. (A "one" that is)
The bus, especially a double-decker, really is the best way to see a city. You can look around you, don't have to worry about the traffic or which road to take and if you see something that interests you you just get off and pick up another bus later on without having all the bother of finding somewhere to park - or even to stop. Most of Birmingham's buses run every 10 minutes (some much more often) and many of them are double-deckers too.
Tomorrow: The Outer Circle!
