Thursday Challenge: School -

"School Bus"

This week at Thursday Challenge the theme is school. I was very fortunate to have been able to walk to school for 9 out of 12 years. For most of us, we waited on the corner for a big yellow beast like this. :)

School buses are so exotic, we haven't them here in Finland. In some cases, if the journey to the school is long, say in the north, the pupils are being driven to school by taxi or mini buses.

I walked to school, also. It took half an hour a side.

Fortunately for me, both my grade school and high school were no more than 1/4-mile away - only a 5 minute walk each side.

I only had to ride the bus during middle school. I was always a skinny, scrawny li'l guy back then so I never got to sit in the back. :)

I always walked to school too. It was so close that I could even go home for lunch, and that was a very good thing as I didin't like the food that was served in school!!!

I walked to school too. It was so near. I like the perspective of your photo.

We weren't allowed to go home for lunch, although I, too, was close enough to do so. I had a dog that walked me to school everyday and then sat outside my classroom window until it was time to go home. He was one smart animal and, sometimes, I think the idea of school was for me to get as smart as he. :)

This is one bus in a long line of buses parked outside The MoST, downtown. I liked the way they were all lined up on the street as far as you could see.
