Taxi - Taksi


It's CDP theme day and the theme is taxi. This photo is at downtown of Oulu, park of Otto Karhi's taxi station. Finnish taxis are reliable, drivers professionals and vehicles in good condition. A 5-kilometre trip costs about 10,30 euros, and a 10 km trip about 16,10 euros.

On CDP teemapäivä ja päivan teema on taksi. Kuva on Otto Karhin puiston taksiasema Oulun keskustasta.

  3. Nice view of line-up. Driving taxis must be tough--long waits sometimes.

  6. Hey, the line of taxis seems to go from Porto, Portugal all the way up to Finland! I love the perspective of your shot of these five very nice cabs. Still very costly (as they seem to be everywhere), so I'll probably walk :-)
