    Good times Tom, that's way too much traveling for me! Nothing like being a globe trotter though I guess.

    Lots of chevys over there, Fords and lots of others, our driver has a Lumina, different styling.

    The Drivers there could put some of the Nascar fellas to shame. Normal driving NOT. we sometimes hit 170 KPH (105 mph) normal driving was around 120 KPH. mostly 160 KPH (100 Mph).

    They drive sometimes 7 cars wide in 3 lanes through intersections, and Left turn from the right side of the road is perfected.. Yep its an adventure.

    AND... if it's the same as it used to be... if you get in an accident, your fault or not, you are liable seeing as you were there. The logic behind it is that if you wouldn't have been there there would not have been an accident.
