You’ve probably heard that traffic in China is crazy. By western standards, it certainly is crazy. I’ve been here since September though, and I’m becoming numb. In addition, I recently travelled to India for a friend’s wedding. Traffic in India is a complete disaster. It makes me think everything is perfectly ordinary here in China. In any case, I give you this video so you can judge for yourselves.
Every time I look out the office window at the street below, it makes me laugh. Someone, a driver, a pedestrian, a cyclist, is always doing something ridiculous. If you find yourself studying in China this summer, and you’re homesick or frustrated by your Mandarin studies, just take a look at the traffic outside your window. It’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
