Traffic! Island time!

An observation.  There is a lot of crazy traffic on the road from the airport to New Delhi at 1am.  But there is a lot of crazy traffic on the road during the day.  Crazy amounts, driving like crazy idiots!  Not that I'm deliberately trying to be culturally insensitive, but I am astounded by the level of great awful driving here: none of the cars seem to be damaged, and even though I swore I saw dozens of accidents just about to happen, there was not one!

Everything here seems to happen like it does in the Caribbean, on island time.  At one point we got almost two hours behind schedule this afternoon!  Perhaps it was the Indians who introduced island time to Trinidad and Tobago?

Yours, posting late, but early, because of the time difference,
