nun on a giant bike



i took the lazoom purple bus tour of asheville for the third time this weekend and it's always a great time.

you learn a lot of asheville trivia, this time they gave out prizes for people who could answer questions.

i answered this one:

asheville has more art deco buildings downtown than any US city other than ____.

(miami)

i won a can of powdered mountain gorilla for answering this correctly. i haven't opened the can but it sounds like soup.

the most enjoyable part for me is probably waving to strangers on the street and seeing them wave back. it was a gorgeous afternoon and everybody on the street (and on the bus) was smiling.

we also saw a guy get hit by a frisbee in montford.

the tour starts in front of the french broad food co-op, and you are allowed to bring drinks on the bus. the FBFC sells serving-size bottles of screw-top prosecco (italian champagne) for $2, and i thought it was a great combination.

Lol - contact frisbee! Got a great visual on that one!
I really want to take a Lazoom tour. My son saw it and said "Mommie! A purple school bus!" Like holy crap! Who did that?!

i highly recommend going! a lot of the humor would be over your son's head at this point, which is probably a good thing! but either way it's very fun tooling around town in a purple bus. the inside is also pimped out. highly recommend!
