"even the transport tickets have English instructions on them"

that being said, please be sure to buy a ticket and stamp it/validiate as you enter the metro area, or get on the tram or bus

I was chatting with a couple as we were riding the tram up to the castle...

as we got off the tram, the man was surprised..." There wasn't anyone to take our ticket" .... aargh!!! people, people, PEOPLE!

(and these people were from a state that is heavily depdenent on public transportation!!)
