Cork seats on the Lisbon Metro: are the Portuguese anticipating a cork slump?
Coming in from the airport to the centre of Lisbon this afternoon I got on a new Metro train with cork seats. Are the Portuguese looking to diversify away from cork stoppers anticipating a slump in the market? Although the cork seats were pretty, they were decidedly uncomfortable. I wouldn't want to travel far sitting on one! Transport Cork Authority?
