Crazy Drivers

You know what I miss in the U.S.? Street intersections with traffic lights, cross walks, street lanes, a double yellow divider line, and drivers that actually follow traffic laws, stay within the lines, and are patient enough to stay driving behind the same car for more than two minutes. 

Seriously folks in the Philippines drive like maniacs! Lanes are merely suggestions. Cars play leap frog by driving into oncoming traffic to pass someone on their left side, then swerve back in to avoid head to head collision. 

And the streets are anarchy. There was a moment today when literally people were going in every direction. U turn while in the right hand lane. Everyone honks their horn every two minutes because that's how they alert everyone else "ready or not, here I come!"
