Crossing the street is playing a real-life game of Frogger. Red & green lights mean nothing. Pedestrian crosswalks mean even less. You must simply take a leap of faith and begin walking, ever so slowly, and have faith in those around you to adjust their path.
It is chaos. However, it is also organized chaos. There’s no road rage, and most near misses are met with neutrality, or perhaps even a smile. The drivers are focused. They anticipate the moves of other drivers and pedestrians. And it works.
