Trams 1

 I mentioned a week ago about the trams in Lisbon. As you can imagine there are a number of photos, but for starters here's just a couple. The above is the tourist route 28 which runs through the centre of town and even in October was packed... we didn't bother. They pull away quite smartly and rattle along at a fair old lick, but stop just a suddenly. The appeal of this is huge, but is probably a pain in the arse if you're a local.
This was a quick shot and hard to frame, but shows the dual panto/pole power pick-ups and the logical occupation of teenage boys in hanging on the back and not paying on the return from school. I'd have done exactly the same.
And the video...
