View from the Top...of a Double-decker!

A few days ago, Steph and I took our first ride on the top deck of a double-decker bus. At the front of the top deck, there's a large windshield, and when you sit in the first or second row behind it, the combination of height, shaking, and speed make for a pretty thrilling ride. It's especially thrilling because people drive wildly over here, and bus drivers are no exception. Here's a video I took of the experience; it's just a couple of quick shots, the first in the town of Beeston, where we live, and the second within the Nottingham city-center. 

You'll notice that towards the end of the first shot we approach a round-about. You have to be careful with those in England, because you might get caught in one a la Clark Griswold: "Look kids: Big Ben, Parliament."
