102 – Magic Bus

Aus einer Buchrezension des Guardian: “Ultimately, one is left with the sad ruminations of Rudy, the Barnstaple bus driver, forced out of business by the Iranian revolution: “All the guys stopped driving then,” he says. “George on Budget Bus, Ugly Bob from Chattanooga who had the Volvo. It broke my heart having to stop.” Ugly Bob with the Volvo, wherever you are – this one’s for you.
