The Tuk Tuks of Delhi – then again it could be a rickshaw.

How does one describe a drive in Delhi traffic in a tuk tuk at 7.30 at night.
Of course its dark with the lights of thousands of cars, bikes and tuk tuks just inches from each other illuminating the night. The fact that there is a bus just inches from your exposed arm on the door side of the vehicle is just common place, so suck it up honey.
Every one of those thousands had a hand on the horn….the noise is deafening and you just accept it.

Images of Mexico City.

I put on another jacket today. One of a tour escort, so this morning was spent going over the paperwork and checking, checking and double checking the paperwork. I was still tired but forced myself to go out and walk… I’m very familiar with this area of Mexico City and it was wonderful to loose myself in the mysteries of a busy Sunday afternoon. I watched ballet on a big screen, wandered through small markets in the park and just observed the throng of people.

San Jose Costa Rica, capturing the essence.

There are lots of Japanese and Korean tourists on big pink buses that snake in a line down the freeways. One could say a caterpillar of tourists.

Our visit to the city yesterday was just like being in any largish city, our plan was to look at Texture, but when we managed to get our guide to take us to the ‘alternative’ part of town, we found delicious bakeries, a fabric shop, a market to buy Mola embroideries… and our day was complete.
