Head here for more Thematic "far from home"
Pedestrians take their lives into their own hands in this city of 19 million souls. The rules of the road so often seem to be mere suggestions, with cars stopping for nothing or no one, drivers leaning on their horns for the sake of making noise, streets filled with traffic coming from whatever direction makes the most sense at any given moment. It's frightening to watch, and even scarier to be in the middle of. I can't imagine walking and texting at the same time, as it would almost be an invitation to becoming someone's hood ornament.
So you can imagine my surprise when I came across this scene at a typically busy intersection. I'm not quite sure how chilled the blood in these people's veins was, but I'm guessing it was colder than mine. I guess you learn how to survive when this is all you've ever known. Either way, I said a little prayer for them all. Just in case.
Your turn: What's the woman on the right talking about?
