Few words and a bunch of photos. I missed getting some fully loaded bikes, like the one I saw yesterday carrying dozens and dozens of eggs. Also missed my favourite – women riding side-saddle, heads held high – very elegant. They stay on effortlessly!
Check these out and yes, do the 2 click to get up close – look at the faces.
See the little guy in the gold/blue shirt – plays for the Seminyak roosters.
Hundreds of cars, trucks, bikes, motor bikes and pedestrians shuffle themselves through this intersection hourly – beep, beep – without swearing, fist waving, or even flipping the bird! No traffic lights, give way signs or traffic cops. As a walker, I call it the ‘leap of faith’ – it’s proof there’s a higher power when you get across in one piece.
I’ve heard that teaching young girls martial arts, not only arms them with self-protection skills, but also builds their sense of self-respect. Abuse of young women and women of all ages, I think, is a big deal here. These girls are about to ride into my favourite inter-section. I watched them make it with fingers crossed.
Check out the cool glasses on the geezer over her right shoulder.
Love this little character.
Well, you get the idea. Beep, Beep!
