I see Parisian cabs wherever I go, and obviously I am extremely intrigued by the makes and models everybody is utilizing. Be clear, dissimilar to the American taxi, in any event in Paris there is no institutionalized shading, similar to Yellow is in New York City, Seattle and somewhere else however by and large the taxis here are either different shades of dim or simply that most essential of hues, dark.
While it can be hard to tell what sort of auto it is as the taxis zoom by, the lion’s share of cabbies have all the earmarks of being driving Skodas, Citroens, Volkswagens, Toyotas, Mercedes, Volvos and Peugeots, and every one of them appear to be genuinely new. One thing they are not is scratched, which separates them from the normal Seattle taxicab, including my own YC 1092. Indeed, an un-scratched taxicab is an excellent taxicab, so I am speculating that the nearby controllers hold the taxi business here to a higher standard, requiring that the gouges and dings are instantly repaired. Given the measure of Parisian activity and how quick everybody is driving I am expecting there are various crashes day by day however I still can’t seem to see one. In Seattle on any given day I see 3-4 or more minor mischance aftermaths, individuals either remaining alongside harmed autos trading data or sitting tight for the police to arrive. Indeed, an undamaged taxi is a great thing!
What’s more, today, being Monday, January 29th, my about three week long voyage is basically finished, and tomorrow I fly back by means of Reykjavik to Seattle, and to what ideally will be an exceptionally fruitful year, since I surely require one rather than the previous “nine topical depleted, limping along years” including an extremely displeased person, me. TAXI PLYMOUTH On the off chance that you have ever said to yourself, “My life should be like this!” at that point you know how I feel, separate, at that point extended disease ruling my life. In spite of the fact that I have become some work done, similar to the blog you’re perusing and the history of Milton Wan, all advance feels incidental, one visually impaired piece of myself driving the other to nothing spare perplexity and hopelessness.
Also, who needs to be a taxi driver, subjected to folly and ineptitude consistently, consistently, consistently? Not me, companions, not me which is the reason I included one ballad a week ago and now two sonnets and an article this week. I have a book to complete and distribute. I have activities and climbing trails to meander down.
As Orwell continued saying in the expositions I’ve been perusing, that the lion’s share of what was being composed in the late 1930s, mid 40s was not worth perusing, at that point likewise, the life I have been composing for myself is something not worth living regardless of the reviving travel keeping me alive and ideally conscious. So out with the negative, and in with the new, who thinks about the rain in light of the fact that in the long run the sky above you will be blue!
