Crossing the Street in Hanoi
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/28/wo...ref=world&_r=0

"Hanoi is not the only city in the world with a traffic problem. But when thousands of motorcycles — there are nearly four million registered in the city — funnel into the winding streets and narrow alleyways, the resulting rush of two-wheelers makes a Hell’s Angels gathering seem polite and orderly."

Nice Vid, I lived in Japan for a few years and it's close to that in Tokyo with cars rather than bikes/scooters. People usually stop for the crosswalks though.

I Ride: naked
Manila was much the same. When the light turns red, the scooters and small motorcycles pour onto the sidewalks, green areas, and funnel between cars, to get to the front of the line. There is a lot of honking, but it's not out of anger or frustration, but only to signal to the cars that someone is next to them, a "please don't hit me" heads up. Through all of this chaos, everyone is as cool as a cucumber. Pretty fucking awesome.
