i love the frantic traffic of this town. to a certain extent, though. for intsance, when i'm walking on the pavement and motorbikes are honking for me to get out of their way, i just feel like throwing a cobblestone at their faces (YES! here, motorbikes just drive on the pavement when the roads get too crowded!). so today, i was just taking some pictures of some traffic cop being useless: they're supposed to be there to regulate the traffic - only at certain times - and to make people stop when the light turns red (humf!). however, if someone jumps the light to their faces*, they just blow their whistle, raise their little red flag (sometimes, they do not even bother) and... there's nothing else they can do while the motorbikes pass them by. so, i was saying, i was taking some pics of this traffic agent when some other security agent blew his whistle at me because i was sitting on a kinda huge plant pot whose stone edges were like a bench. he looked at me in an angry way and shouted: 'no sitting' (probably the only words he knows in english), while other motorbikes were jumping red lights and getting on the pavement in front of his little useless friend!!
* i was told that what's shown on the 2d picture is actually allowed because the woman is turning right. fine. but i swear i saw some people going straight ahead!
