In the Midst of Chaos

Today while driving through the city in a taxi, I had a little realization. Amidst all that traffic chaos – bicycles everywhere, weaving between vehicles, pedestrians in the middle of the road, buses swerving around cars and into oncoming traffic, cars changing lanes without warning, overloaded trucks in the middle of it all – I don’t even notice it anymore. I’m not even bothered by it!? What am I gonna do when I return to a tranquil and calm land, where one can cross the road safe in the knowledge that the cars will stop, that the red light means stop, that sidewalks are for people?
