Durban Bus Rant: One Wrong Turn

Today’s reflection on the bus: Well, it is not odd that once again Durban Transport had a few buses not show up on their regular route so the 4:40pm 318 Fynnland bus saw it packed with people standing (first time I’ve seen this) of Bluff folks just trying to head home to their families. When you think it can’t get worst, the bus, trying to follow its regular route, has been detoured by road work and we are now cruising through the side streets of this quiet neighborhood with the working women on the bus screeching in horror (maybe delight?) due to the detour then yelling “right!” or “straight!” “ NO, left!” while kids and homeowners smirk at the bus manovering through the back lanes. We made it through and I don’t think I have ever heard so many relieved thank-yous from both the passengers and driver.
