Traffic? What traffic?

Today has been goats, monuments, mosques, silk rugs, parrots, chipmunks, outbreaks of order in amongst dust and rubble, and cute children in neat school uniform everywhere - but mainly traffic. Horrendous, astonishing, mind-blowing traffic, made of cars, brightly-painted trucks, tuk tuks, rickshaws, horses, bikes and motorbikes woven through by insoucient pedestrians, dogs, and even a cow.

Though the noise is miles worse than a Manhattan jam - the horn is as vital as the brakes here - the patience is extraordinary, and a lesson to all tetchy Kiwi drivers.

Busy day, lots to see, not much to eat, not too hot - went well. More of the same tomorrow (hopefully more sleep too).
