    Might need to take a few clean pairs of shorts if i ever go there. Looks like a new buzz for any adrenalin junkies out there.
  • That's par for the course out there.

    I lived in Shanghai for 2 years a few years ago. Seen it all... cars driving on the pavement, the green man doesn't mean cross, driving in the opposite carriageway is acceptable, u turns on motorway slightroads, free for all at cross roads.

    And it all seems to gel nicely, no one gets knocked over or angry with each other.

    That looks fine to me, it's probably a lot less dangerous than some of the fast UK gyratories. In this video people are taking care and being tolerant of one another.

    That'd wake you up in the morning!! Reminds me of Five Ways island in Brum... :wink:
