The bus drive was excellent!...To crowdy...
8.13 By Peripeteia

So... The bus driver charged 2 euros for luggage, issued a receipt for 1.30 euros. No change

Clean and comfortable...1) The driver was lining his own pocket, overcharging the luggage. Charged 2 euros, issued a receipt for 1.30 euros, and acted innocent, no change given. To all customers. 2) Too aggressive while driving, my son vomitted twice (once for each driver).
