  • Doubledecker in Vicenza, Italy

    I took a trip out this past Sunday to visit the city of Vicenza in northern Italy to walk around a really interesting antiques and flea market and one item in the flea market section had me literally scratching my head...

    Imagine my surprise to find an example of the icon of British city transport, ie. a bright red doubledecker bus, parked in the square adjacent to Vicenza cathedral!

    After the past few months of being indoctrinated by the locals in the merits of Italian wine, spirits and even beer - yep the Italians do actually brew beer, or at least they call it beer! - I was even more surprised to discover that this bus was actually a traveling pub! Now this is what I call taking advantage of public transport

    And yep it did happen and here's the photo to prove it

    Cheers!

          Nice one Jim, they still not got it right until you have waited over 30 minutes gagging for a drink and then three turn up.

            We need some of those traveling pubs in Wisconsin. They would be a roaring success at a Packer Football game
            Jim - I'm glad that you found a new way to travel through Italy.

              Jim how does the pub work?
              Once you have had your fill or too much to drink do they dump you off along the way?Must get interesting for the in between rest stops.

              Or is it stationary and moves on after the last patron leaves?

                Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

                OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
