Surely a joke? 


We found that Sri Lanka was slightly worse than Goa for driving.  We made friends with a few couples at the hotel and one couple worked at a religious retreat so we were careful to not offend them.  We had previously gone on a day out in a minibus without the religious couple and I had sat in the front and had been petrified. 


Anyway this time I said I would sit in the back away from the AC because of my asthma and our religious pals sat in the front.  After a short while, the man screamed 'Jesus Christ, I wouldn't have come if I knew it would be like this'.


At the time we were on a blind bend overtaking something that was overtaking something else.


One of my daughter's friends was sent to India to be a health and safety officer.  Having seen a man standing on an elephant's back, using electric hedge trimmers and various other wonders, I think that would be an impossible job.

I will try and get a photo of the electric cables all going to one pole

Google is full of them along with many strange balancing acts to get jobs done. None of that is confined to India. It seems to be common in third world countries where, it seems, life is less valued.

We live in a time when intelligent people are silenced so that stupid people won't be offended

I've got a couple of cracking photos somewhere.  One is of an open junction box in a hotel and the other is of a pole in the street.  I was working with some electrical engineers at the time and thought the photos may amuse (shock) them.

a friend of mine is an architect i was waiting outside whille she did woman shopping , i was leaning in a concrete post, arms folded, wondering just how pleasurable shopping was when she came out, she stopped in the shop doorway and called me over to her, where she gave me the biggest rollicking for leaning on the concrete post 'it is reinforced by metal and in Indian temps it can fracture then it rains and water is an even better conductor than metal and just touching such a post could kill you.... then i would have to carry my own shopping...
