AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Rhino Tram

A passing tram in Swanston Street, Melbourne.
I loved the signage - unlike the usual advertisements.
Each time I go in to Melbourne, there is always a new collection of colourful trams to photograph!

trams can be weapons
imagine thirty rhinos
a panic stampede

Interesting signage. I'm sure people would take heed. People can relate more being hit by a rhino than by a train, I think, lol.

what a neat idea for a "warning" sign. and quite interesting, too, BABALA is a Filipino word for Warning.

Somebody at the Transit Authority has a great sense of the absurd! Very cute.

I like the rhinos better then the advertisements we usually have on our trams.

I hardly recognize that it is a tram.

What a hoot! The new tram in Jerusalem could use such warnings. Pedestrians are not used to it yet so the tram has to go slow, not to hit anyone.
