Altijd leuk, het dagelijkse verkeer hier…

Het maakt eigenlijk niet zoveel uit welk vervoersmiddel je kiest. Of met z’n allen met de auto in de file of die ietwat milieuvriendelijkere middelen: fiets of metro. Deze hebben dan weer andere nadelen, zie hierboven:

– oversteken op eigen risico op de fiets

– gezellig met z’n allen in de metro

dit zijn dan de adviezen die je als expatter krijgt:

We respect your personal choices when commuting (although clearly, bicycles win). Here are some survival tips for those eschewing cabs and cars.

Cycling Tips:
Common sense. Keep your eyes and ears open for crazy drivers, don’t listen to music
Keep your most expensive items on your body and try not to show off that you have them
Get an ugly bike so it doesn’t get stolen
Be aware of the “turning right is at all times allowed rule” always watch out for those cars
Get a face mask unless you have hidden ambitions to become the next Tom Waits

Subway Tips:
Get on the subway near the stairs so you don’t have to fight to get to the stairs faster when you get off
Know which stop the door closes and doesn’t open for several stops so you can lean on it longer
The joint of the train is the coolest spot in summer
