First impression revisited

Just back from the end of year holidays. What's the impression:
  1. They are making the airport road wider!
  2. Even on a Sunday morning there are traffic snarls mainly due to traffic participants hindering each other, in their quest to get from here to there.
  3. The taxi driver had a piece of paper (with numbers) in his hand and in the other his mobile phone which he was pressing regularly. He used the horn, every other nano second ('in Cambodia we must horn, in other country, no!'). We cut off two corners by speeding through petrol stations (= very common) and one corner we cut off the traffic lights by driving the wrong way up the free turn lane for the traffic from the right.
