Theme Day: ¡ Taxi !

This is a typical Chilean taxi. They're normally Nissans or Daewoos, painted in black with a yellow top. You'll never see a Mercedes turned into a taxi in Santiago (or anywhere in Chile), as European DP bloggers showed us...
Prices can vary, but they usually charge $200 (about US$ 0.37) when you take the cab and then another $80 (about US$ 0.15) for each 200 meters. Taxi drivers are usually friendly.

Please take your time and visit these City Daily Photo, to see how taxis look around the world:

good thing they have that yellow spot on top, otherwise they'd be difficult to find at night.

You're right, the yellow top really helps a lot to identify taxis!!!

I would have liked a closer shot with less bitumen in the foreground.
