Day 122
While stopped at the traffic lights in an auto rickshaw I took a photo of this Sikh man on a motorbike next to me. Obviously no one in India (or Bangladesh) wears helmets on motorbikes, but did you know that in the UK Sikhs wearing turbans are exempt from the law requiring motorcycle riders to wear a helmet? About the only interesting fact I learnt (and remembered) from my ‘Life in the UK’ test for British citizenship. This is also my last day on the sub continent, I’m off to London tomorrow. Where everyone wears helmets (except as listed above), follows road rules and drives by sight, not sound. It’s all going to seem very quiet.
