I spoke with my dad tonight. He just returned from a two week business trip to the nation of Sri Lanka. Upon his return, he read this blog and said the post about being rich was very relevant to his trip.
Most of the Sri Lankans have no cars. They travel by bus, motorcycle, bicycle, elephant, or something else. Traveling through their capital city, they have no four lane roads. They are two lane roads that are “made” into four lane roads. He said he knew he would always arrive safely at his destination because there never were any traffic accidents. Despite the fact that motorcycles are weaving to avoid bicycles, yet swerving in front of an on-coming bus, people arrive safely.
