Loving it - no [email protected] muzak everywhere. And at MoE today tourists complaining that they couldn't sit in a cafe for a coffee anywhere today. Don't any of them do any research?

Started at about 6pm on my way home from work on the Eastern Ring Road--frigging taxi driver, on his mobile, doing 40kph in the fast lane, weaving all over the place. Everyone steaming up to him at 120+. No brains + no sustenance + no concentration = just another day.
