Crossing the street in China – Another attempt at explaining it to foreigners, originally uploaded by Serenity in China.
This is now I think one of the top 3 pics I’ve gotten to try and explain ‘crossing the street’ culture in China.
Julianne and I were standing on the sidewalk waiting for the light to change when this young woman just stepped out into traffic and began ‘froggering’ (can I say that? lol) between cars to get to the other side . . .
If there’s a GROUP of Chinese people who do this Julianne and I sometimes follow cause it generally works out–but doing this by ourselves–nuh-uh!
Julianne hasn’t been back in America for a long time. When she does get back I think she’s in for some massive reverse-culture-shock while crossing the street back home, lol.
