Diesel Driver

I took an Uber in London three weeks ago. The driver was from the Congo. The car was a Prius, although the steering wheel was on the wrong side of the dashboard. The streets are not designed for cars and the traffic was insane. The fare was probably about 75% of what it would have been in Seattle. The charge on my credit card was $21 for a trip that took well over a half an hour.

Later on the trip, when we were outside London, I got to try my hand at driving on the wrong side of the road. The first day was a bit stressful, but I eventually got the hang of it. I had to upgrade to a Mercedes GLA 200 to get a rental car that I could fit my 6'4" frame into and that had an automatic. (Automatic transmissions are scarce at the rental agencies in Europe, but I didn't want to try shifting left handed while learning to drive on the left.) It was a diesel hybrid and it actually got over 50 miles a gallon for the 5 days I drove it. It would be a nice select car if it could pass emission standards in this country.

That is about $12.50 USD.

It is the #1 bar in Rome (and one of the only) to watch NFL football. I am not much of a drinker and want to hit the Colosseum early tomorrow so I didnt chase nightlife tonight
