Wild, wild West

The road around Quezon Memorial Circle: eight lanes of trucks, buses, cars, jeepneys and motorcycles weaving in and out of their lanes; coming from the innermost lane to turn right at any of the six avenues radiating from it; coming in from those six avenues and promptly driving onto the innermost lane. It's a good thing I don't drive. When we're caught on that road during rush hour, I always close my eyes.

We call those "suicide exits" - since sometimes, taking the lane risks your life.

Hehe we don't have that in Butuan. Hehe. Oh and Hilda I'm posting the photos I took when I went to Manila at my Sunset Mindanao blog. My mom and I went riding the calesa. You bet I got a ton of photos during my trip there. hehe

Traffic is probably like that in most large urban cities around the world. I sometimes close my eyes too when driving in Boston:)

Similar to the traffic around L'arc de Triomphe in Paris - where the hub has 12 spokes!

Today, "Louis et Mme. la Vache celebrate their first anniversary

Hilda, "Louis" noticed your comment at Sailor Girl's Atlantico Azul. Here's another ship, bigger than the one Sailor Girl showed!

I am so not a fan of circles while driving but you got a great shot of this!

Before I read that second-to-last sentence, I was gonna say: "And you took a picture while driving?!" :)

Traffic is one of my big fears, too. It's pretty bad here in the northeast USA, and if I thought I could get away without driving, I would!
