5 Crazy Chinese

A short Beijing Metro ride and we surface in search of our destination to experience some more of for us amazing Beijing. As we walk the streets the traffic is hectic but not much worst than any other large city.

I'm thinking to myself the drivers here are not all that bad or as crazy as some might think. However, about an hour or so later my mind has changed a bit. At least five of them are “very bad” and insanely crazy and we love it.

I drive in Beijing and it is actually not bad. However it's good to know local rules. The scariest part is driving at night with bikes and pedestrians coming at you from all directions.

Actually, much tougher to drive in Shanghai. Couldn't do it without getting voice directions from Google maps on my iPhone. At least Beijing is easier to figure out as it is mostly a big grid. In Shanghai, there is no such thing as a straight line.
