3 strange things that i’ve seen in lahore this week:
1. there’s a signal at the main market/mm alam intersection, where all three lights, red yellow and green remain lit up simultaneously. Confused and happy, basically do whatever you want.
2. Maatam on the streets at defence moar (defence ‘turn’) (I dont know what the road is called…the one with gourmet and mechanic workshops on it). All the traffic had to be diverted to the other side of the road, and we had to drive through a road cut in half while the police surrounded the crowd on all sides.
3. The first open manhole that I’ve seen in Lahore so far – finally! It was almost right in the middle of the road that leads away from cavalry bridge, towards defence moar. Didn’t know if the car would’ve gone straight in it though, but have heard enough horror stories of kids falling into open manholes as a child, they were an all too frequent and nasty occurence where I grew up.
