Traffic Fun :)

Traffic here can be so frustrating at times. People drive everywhere (and sometimes on both sides of the road) so traffic jams happen a lot! The other day one of the intersections' traffic lights were out. This caused some serious problems with the traffic. After a bit of craziness, a man with a stick came out and decided to direct the traffic.
The whole time he was directing traffic I kept wondering how people in America would react to something like that. This guy was really good at directing traffic. Everyone listened to him too... it could be because he had a big stick... but either way he was very helpful :)
One of those random funny South Asia things :) I thought it was awesome and he really got the traffic moving :)

Andrea- I LOVE this post. We have these guys here too...we refer to him as "that guy" who directs traffic. For the LONGEST time I have been trying to get a picture of "that guy" to do a post about it and haven't been able to. SO glad you got great pictures and were able to share about this South Asian thing. It makes me laugh everytime and I don't know who "that guy" is, where "that guy" comes from or why "that guy" has the authority or takes the authority but usually I am happy he does it so that the traffic will start moving again. SO FUNNY!

do you think he was carrying the stick around for just that possibility? :)

South Asia is so fun. :) It happens so much, maybe they have to learn how to direct traffic to drive. :) haha
