Waiting for the water taxi

In the top photo, a man awaits the arrival of the yellow water taxi, which arrived a few moments later, and he hopped on. He'll be transported across to the river island you see in the background, where he may have a houseboat, or might just be visiting friends. The cat didn't go with him...

Note the killer icicle in the bottom photo. Though this one doesn't pose any clear danger*, there have been a couple of cases of icicles falling on passers-by downtown.

*Although in the photo it appears likely to fall on boats passing by, the icicle is hanging too close to the deck's outer side to be of any real danger.

Cool! (literally—that's some icicle).
So are there no cars on the island? And does the ferry run until a certain hour or all night too? I'd hate to live over there and get stuck over here!

Fascinating and beautiful. So cold looking, though.

I love the little kitty in the first photo too. I wonder if she will hop on the water taxi too!

I like the water taxi. I am reminded that we have a killer icicle that always hangs from the same corner of our roof and I have to have somebody knock it down. It is as big around as my arm.

A yellow cab in Belgrade!

No killer icicles here. The cat seemingly waiting patiently in line to board the taxi amused me no end.

Is that yellow romboid trafic sign in the river, or attached on the "roof" of "taxi"? Because, I've never seen trafic signs in the water.

Hi, Obelix! It's on the boat!
