Drive By Shopping

A Deccan Chronicle Photo

Vegetable vendors right in the middle of traffic. If that is not crazy enough, take a look at the video (below) of traffic in the city. The photo is from a local newspaper and the video is from youtube.


We don't need no stinkin' drugs to get a high. Life here is a reality show and driving in traffic is one big rush. ;)

Thanks for comment on Nelson DP.
As far as I know, We don't have any conspiracy theories against contrail. But... We never know, if the US get flu like this may be spared to worldwide. I had to google, what it was.

Lol! Typical India (and lovin' it!) God forbid if you trip on them even by mistake. You'll surely get a mouthful.

That video is unbelievable! I am surprised that nobody crashed! Sometimes they missed each other by centimeters! Wow.

Wow! Truly I have not seen anything like it before. What a chaotic traffic! It's really a amazing miracle that no one crashed! I laughed a lot seeing this video! Thanks for sharing!

Oh my goodness, that video is unbelievable in so many ways. And the vendors literally in the street! Traffic is so regimented here by comparison.

Thanks for stopping by Ash's Eye - I appreciate it! Your photos are great, but I am also really enjoying your commentary. I will be back :)
