I can play around with my camera all I want, but if I don't have it with me, it does me no good. Take, for instance, yesterday.
I finished my banking business and was standing outside in front, waiting for B to finish his. I was right across from the Ultramar ticket booth and the pedestrian sidewalk crossing was to my right. I heard a loud motor scooter and looked to my left.
Coming down the street, at a speed way too fast for a crowded part of town like that, were two tourists, each on a rented motorscooter. They were racing each other and yelling like zombies. You know, just good, ignorant, life endangering fun with no regard for the safety of themselves or anyone else.
While these two speed freaks weren't looking, the taxi in front of them stopped to let pedestrians cross the street. You guessed it. One of them slammed into the trunk of the taxi and his little joy ride came to an abrubt end.
Nobody was hurt. No visible damage done. The police detained the two tourists but I doubt that anything but a stern scolding was issued. They were lucky.
And so were the rest of us. Until the next time idiots are allowed to rent anything with a motor.
