718. Taste of Nankai

summer breeze...
we cross a high bridge
in Osaka's tram

[Yesterday we took a ride in an electric trolly street car across Edmonton's High Level bridge, the World's highest streetcar river crossing.

The streetcar (HDK 247) was built in Japan in 1921 and operated as part of the Nankai Railway in Osaka till 1990. It was then transferred to Edmonton and in 1995 it began operating as a tourist attraction.]
