    This is how accidents happen !!!

    I have been going through some older photographs and came across this one when i was in Nepal. This is just how accidents happen - rolling a smoke when driving, just plain irresponsible



    Cheers

    The number of people I saw in Cambodia riding motorcycles and texting or chatting on the phone was astounding! I saw one bloke with his wife and 2 kids on a motorcycle while he was texting!

    I used to roll smokes on the go as a matter of regularity. *before I got my high and mighty ex-smoker patch* The trick was timing the lights Never tried it on an elephant though!

    When I was in Thailand, I saw a young mother riding a scooter. In 1 hand she had very young baby. Her other hand was on the throttle, but the eyeopener was she had a mobile phone wedged between her shoulder and ear and was happily chatting away in traffic. Needless to say, my wife was gobsmacked. I simply said, hey she is talking handsfree!!
    Cheers,

    My wife has been riding a motor scooter in Cambodia since she was 13 years old. I was surprised, and asked her how old you have to be to get your license. She looked at me and said "What do you mean"?
