There was a strike of the public buses’ drivers in Lebanon today. The funny part is that it wasn’t really noticed in the country; since not a lot of people use the public transportation, with or without it won’t affect the working class much.

There was a strike of the public transportation in Lille a week ago; all the buses, tramways and one of the two lines of subway were completely closed for 1 full day. The funny part is that everybody noticed it in the region, people either had to stay home, or carpool to get to work (personally I enjoyed a quiet day without the sound of the tramway every 10 minutes :P)

You see now why having public transportation in a country has a good and a bad side: the good side (among a lot others) is that it minimizes the traffic jam; the negative side (among a few others) is that when they’re down and you’re used to them you’re in deep trouble.

The even funnier part is that, even if a lot of people in France use public means to go wherever they want to, the company responsible of the buses, tramways and subways in Lille in the region decided to be on holiday on the 1st of May for Labor day! Talk about a socialist country!

What I haven’t told you yet is that starting tomorrow we’ll be going away: we’re going to celebrate our 1-year wedding anniversary in Italy 😀 I will leave you with a small sneak of what we’ll be eating for the coming days 🙂
