Here I was being cautious...

Crossing the street, just now, I had to wait for the cars to pass.  In China, cars do not yield for pedestrians unless, a pedestrian is able to stake a claim to open space before the car can.  What this means is that when traffic is think, a pedestrian has to wait and hope for a break.  Just now, I was trying to cross Xueqian Road and I didn't see any breaks so I stood back.  But beside me stood a woman carrying a baby.  She dared to cross and dodge cars when I wouldn't.  And so I was aghast, and had something to write about in this blog.
