Collision Of Cultures

From my recent Journey in India
Jaipur India, January 13 2007
We climb to an upper courtyard in the Maharajah's Palace. We look through a 500 year-old window opening to this view of downtown Jaipur. Here's what we see.
This is India in a nutshell. If you can figure out which lane is which on this road, you're doing better than me. It's chaos. I'm not joking when I say that you cannot drive on the road unless you have a working horn on your vehicle. And you want to get from here to there? That is just an act of will.

debo hobo: It is chaos. But it all seems to work. This is such a different world.
