    Well I have been to Medellin and used their transport system and to the poor people in that city it is a blessing. I am sure I have a firmer grip on English grammar than you. Of course grammar wasn't in question, it was the difference in meaning between two words, wonderful and wonders, two words with the same root but totally different meanings.

    Pic shows maybe 25% of the people standing in line...……… all being done in an orderly fashion. I have seen more chaos trying to board a Caribe Tours bus at the main depot.
