You ain't seen gridlock until you've seen gridlock in India. We were driving through a small town and suddenly it seemed everyone converged at the same intersection going every which direction and NO ONE could move! It was insane. The villagers loved it and were waiving - as cuious about us as we about them. I tried to take pictures but they really don't tell the tale. No one was moving. Our Trip Leader got out of the bus and somehow vehicles began to move and we went on without taking out the fruit stand. We were scant inches away from brushing the pole holding up the top. That would have been a mess. I have no idea how we miss hitting cars, etc.
