Milan Streetcar

The other night I was waiting to catch a bus on Market Street. As the bus pulled up, a boxy orange streetcar pulled up behind it.

I love the San Francisco streetcars. I take them every chance I get - but I'd never been on one of the orange Milan streetcars before.

Wooden benches! Beautiful lacquered wood, wood trim between the windows ...

Instructions in Italian on plaques affixes to the walls ...

Splendid buttons to ring for your stop, which produces a lovely metallic 'ding' ...

It was a lovely start to a lovely evening.

Seeing the streetcars on Market always makes me happy.
