Downhill driving

Oman offers great possibilities for 4x4 driving. Sometimes it's not so easy to take a video and to drive at the same time.

Dangerous jobs in Manila

The photo is showing one of the most dangerous jobs in Manila. This woman is cleaning a highway without any security measures. Can you imagine driving some 70km/h behind a truck and then such a woman appears? Trust me, it can get worse since cleaning personnel is also working in tunnels which usually lack proper lighting.

Park at your own risk

How risky life in Manila could be can easily be exemplified with these two pictures from Ortigas. The one above is informing you on the state of the skyscraper (i.e. park at your own risk). The other picture below is showing how risky it is not only for your car but for all surrounding buildings as well.

How to slow down the traffic?

Below please watch the daily madness on Manila's streets.

I stopped playing computer games since driving in Manila is much more fun than in the virtual world: Everything goes.

Motorcades as the one presented below you see quite often every day on the streets of Manila. Many important people seem to live here, but sadly the country compares very poorly with others where you don't see such motorcades at all.

Video from yesterday on EDSA, Ortigas, Metro Manila.
