    Have a trip around Cambridge city with us in an open top bus

    A small video to give you an idea of the City of Cambridge , this was shot with my old Panasonic GX1 which is now in the possestion of Neo ,, turn the volume up and in the last bit of the video just see how this camera picks up the sound from someone busking down in the street ,,,,, incredible , no external mike just the cameras little ears

    Also note as we approach the round building area the bollards in the road automatically desending into the ground as the bus approaches ( dunno if they rose up again after my weight had ben over them )

    Sit back enjoy the ride



    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    Cambridge is a lovely town with some great pubs.

    I once saw a car stuck on one of the bollards. They admit buses only and he followed a bus through, only to be lifted into the air.

    I would have preffered it if you had avoided the red bar that ran across the window, but really enjoyed it none the less. I've been to cambridge once but don't really remember it, so it was great to have a look around such a famous city. Cheers mate, can't green you or I would.

    I enjoyed it as well, I sort of understand that you cannot remove the red bar as being a integral part of the bus and all but obviously the poster is a but short on tolerance.

    Thanks for that. Brought back some fond memories. We were there last year. Cambridge is my home town.

    I don't know if it was the same incident, that I saw on Anglia news, If there was a lot of oil on the road afterwards, the cars sump was broken?

    They do also provide Taxi's and some trades people with zappers to lower the bollards. I done some work for Trinity Hall once and used their van to get out and back through the bollards.
    They are in use only between 8.00am to 4.00/30 during the day.
