A classic Routemaster London bus in Corfu Town

  The Routemaster doubledecker bus is one of the symbols of London. This type of bus was first introduced in 1956 and had been produced until 1968 but in 2005 the last ones had been drawn off and replaced by bendy buses. 

  A local english language school brought an original bendy bus in town for a week to advertise its english classes. The beautiful red bus was placed next to the old venetian fountain at the Esplanade. 

  From the very first day, our british visitor drew the attention of the passerbys who enjoyed their evening stroll.

  Do you think that Corfu's narrow streets and architecture could accomondate buses of this type?
