En Serio Just to share a little frivilous joke with you bloggers out there....picture this. Friday night, about 11:30 driving along the highway...Traffic pack out, now tell me why there is so much traffic on the road in the middle of the city at this time of the night...You know why, because this is Caracas, and there is always a traffic jam wherever you go and whatever time of the day, and this is no joke. This city is a standard parking lot. Never leave in a rush to get anywhere, because trust me there will be a traffic jam. The people here think it's beyond them to take public transportation so they use cars for everything. It's a social status thing (that's a whole other blog altogether) Can you imagine a woman that lives in my building drives her car to work in a building that is less than 10 mins walk from our building... incredible....and to make matters worse, the women here are the worst drivers in the world.
Anyhow back to Friday night...so we are going home on a trip that is suppose to take about 15 mins but is actually taking 1/2 hr or longer and there is traffic everywhere, but we crawl along, finally we realize that there is something constricting traffic, must be an accident or something, or maybe a car broken down, so like everyone else we switch over to the other lane and lo and behold what greets us as we approached the car holding up traffic....so you ready for this, yuh sure yuh ready now...yuh sitting down ok here goes....Ah man sitting in he car pacefully sleeping. Yup, sleeping in the car in the middle of the traffic...Only in Caracas...traffic is jammed up because, my man decide dat he tired and wanna sleep, so he put de car in park in the middle ah de lane and lay back and gone tuh sleep. Well I've never seen such in all muh born dayz..
so we pass by de man and a few cars later, he wake up and drive off..we still hold up in traffic, so we roll down de window and ask de fella, hey yuh had a good sleep...de man look at we laff and sey yea, and we drive off and de traffic clear enuff...You cud imagine such doh...wha all we cud do was buss out laffin...But hey it's all good...wha yuh gine do......But Live and let Live
