Estacionamento Selvagem: «Perhaps prayer will help»

«We whine to a halt, clang the bell. This morning some little lettuce has parked his car too close to the tramlines just below the Sé (cathedral). The driver does all he can to nudge his tram through the gap but can't pass. He gets out and climbs the Sé's steps. Perhaps prayer will help.»
