A day on the road

Driving in Bali is enough to make anyone just want to walk everywhere. The drawing I've done was just the traffic in our lane ahead of us. Let alone the passing on the right, down the center and on the left. The oncoming traffic is the same. I spend most of my time with my teeth clenched, pressing the imaginary brake at my foot on the shot gun side and gasping with a startled and frightened high pitched intake of breath and then there are those Bali dogs...
Needless to say, I am quite an annoying passenger. I can't help it though, I'm scared! 
This was just a day going to buy hotel quality bedding from a gut named Yoga. A far cry from a trip to Bed, Bath and Beyond, but you can not believe the deal we got!

I'm with you Jennifer, I would probably need a blind fold to be forced into a car !!! Hope the dogs are street smart!!
And the sketch is a fabulous reminder of those moments (hope they have seatbelts there - and maybe helmets ;-)
Stay safe and keep posting!

Egad, worse than the Beltway in DC, and that's plenty bad enough!

Great sketch, though...

A blindfold wouldn't do it for me. I'd be walking! Can you walk safely across the street? You did a really nice job on the motorbikes and people.
