Big red bus
Manchester United is in town to play a couple of crowd-attracting matches at Perth Stadium. This is an attempt by the state government to put Perth on the tourist map. Big $$$ we’re paid to attract the team here and they are being treated like royalty. They arrived direct from Manchester in a private chartered plane which took only 16 hours. They are staying in luxury at the Crown and have a big red bus to take them around. I happened upon this yesterday as I went down to the river for my afternoon walk. I asked the driver if passengers could see out and he said there were tiny hidden windows for them! I suppose they will be going to Rottnest to have a few selfies with the qwokkas as all the top personalities do after Roger Federer started it.
