And I actually got a picture …

Last month we were farting around on the coast, driving up some little road.  We were in Bob’s car, which is a modded G35 and made for driving that sort of road.  We got behind someone who did not like the curves, and they were going about half the posted speed limit.  To add insult to injury, every time there was a good (albeit probably illegal) opportunity to pass they would cross the line and straighten the curves by taking both lanes.   It was slow.  We gave up trying to pass and took deep breaths, instead.

This guy on a bike came up behind us and Bob muttered something about going so slow that we were going to get passed by a bicycle … and we did.  AND I got a picture of it for posterity.  Every time I see it I laugh, maybe you will, too.

  1. Heh, reminds me of me the time I drove from Tarifa to Bolonia. I had a massive queue of cars behind me and I’m sure I was driving them nuts. But better than driving off the road! It was the first time I’d driven in over ten years … my license has since expired. I won’t be renewing it.

    Must be nice living somewhere you don’t have to have a license to drive. I think I would like living where you didn’t have to drive. Is your mass transit any good? I know you take taxis and ride your bike but don’t remember hearing much about busses/trolleys and the like.

  3. I don’t miss having a car, that’s for sure. But it would be nice to have occasional access to one (and a driver!) for weekend or day trips. Trains and buses between cities run quite regularly and aren’t expensive. For example, Seville to Málaga return by train is 32 euros.

    Otherwise, public transit is quite good in the city. I don’t actually take taxis very often. Usually only for hospital appointments when I’m on chemo or am otherwise unwell.

  4. I used to have this problem in Colorado all the time. You’d get some flatlander in front of you on a mountain road, and you’d burn your brakes out/overheat your radiator because they were dunderheads. Try driving up Pikes Peak on a lovely day in July. Just try it.
