The Beauty of Mass Transit

leave a comment »


Maybe it’s because I live in a city known for it’s public transportation, but I love mass transit. Anywhere I travel I make it a point to take a local bus or subway, and tend to put a map of the transit system in my pocket to be oggled at upon return.
