Traffic Ways

Today was full of orientation and a short bus city tour of Delhi. We passed by numerous places such as Red Fort, an ancient beautiful ruined palace of the Mughal Emperor; a garden built in honor of Ghandi and the President’s and parliament houses. On our way to view the President’s house, the van we rode in had died and what an adventure that was. Our driver immediately made what would be an illegal u-turn in the U.S., a “normal” u-turn right in the middle of the highway into the shoulder as our van was shutting down. It made me wonder what exactly were the traffic laws in India and whether or not I’d live to find out. Fortunately, I lived to tell the story but I have yet to learn the “legal” traffic ways of India as well as get used to it.
