Smooth and Speedy Ride Home

Riding Home in a Colectivo with an Eerie Relaxed Bus Driver through the Streets of Buenos Aires, Argentina
When the wild bash is over coming home and going to bed is everything you want. Well, now you would die for living close to the club. As the party locations in Buenos Aires are too spread out living close would mean you have to rent an apartment or at least a room in almost every quarter.
While only reckless fools drive a car after drinking or ride with someone who was drinking, alternative means of locomotion must be found. A taxi would be an option but, frankly, it is only half as exciting as using the fancy colectivos. They are too swell to be refused and their drivers are even cooler. Take a look at this bus driver and let me tell you he was driving at breathtaking speed through the streets of Buenos Aires. But at least he was sober! (;

You are smart to ride home with a sober driver rather than one who has been drinking. He bus looks new, clean and comfortable too.

How do you know he was sober? ;-)

I suppose at that time in the morning, the streets are fairly empty of traffic so he can go fairly fast...

This, my friend, is a very nice night shot!

Looks and sounds like a ride with him would sober you up rather quickly.

Great shot. You captured the whole feeling of a late night going home.

That's the pose of a man who has mastered his domain :)
