From the office back to the hotel

Drivers in India always blow their horn. That is the soundscape of India. It is their way to communicate, to inform each other: “I am driving behind you I will passing you now, keep the line, don’t shift to the right or left”

To our very surprise there is one situation where nobody blows the horn: Driving against traffic.

We couldn’t believe what was going on when we drove the first time back from the office to our hotel. Driving from the office lane we got onto the main road in the wrong direction. After a while we got prepared but every time it was a surprise again. Driving against traffic is just a common practice here to take a shortcut. It seems to bother nobody in India just us foreigners.
