When the layers are adding and adding ..
You’ll easily distinguish the tourist, usually half naked, while locals as usual know better when it comes to protect their skins from the sun – we are in Asia: white is the only beautiful skin colour!
Add gloves, long socks, helmet (or should I say plastic bucket) and the must have anti pollution mask.
I can’t help but wonder how people would see someone so dressed up in France? Integral kind of burka? Traveling changes our perspective .. In Vietnam they call those drivers “Ninjas” and most of them usually add another layer on the ear or to their fingers tips: the phone of course !
Traffic is really insane here. But if you spend sometimes on the side of the road safely observing the traffic, you’ll find some order in the chaos. I felt the same while in India. It’s a local symphony actually. I ve been told that most of the accidents are caused by foreigners, locals know how to manoeuver.
I won’t drive out of our neighborhood, that’s for sure. Still wondering if I should get an ebike or rely on taxis though ..
