Walking is not very common here, I´ve heard. Most people, indeed, seem to travel by bus or taxi, which I didn´t expect, but is, nonetheless, the case. Cars, buses, trucks and motorcycles drive fast and seemingly recklessly, so be careful walking and keep your head up. Watch out for the deep potholes in the sidewalk.
If you do walk, there are sidewalks, which might be full of stuff, or a parked car, or a dog, and there´s the road. When crossing the road, make sure to look both ways (yes, mother) because the cars here will not stop. In fact, I´ve heard, that if they can, they will often speed up to prevent you from crossing the road in front of them. And buses and big trucks are not even as forgiving as cars. So be careful.Related to:
