Random Ramblings - Part II
After getting (almost) run over several times, it has been explained to me that the right turn *always* has the right of way here. So, for example, say you're driving fast down a straight road, but you're approaching an intersecting street on your right. If and only if there is a vehicle barreling down that street about to make a fast and completely legal right turn onto the street upon which you are driving, it's your responsibility to prepare to stop.
You don't have to be attractive to be on TV here. There *are* lots of attractive people on TV here, but it certainly does not appear to be a universal rule like it is in the States. There are loads of normal looking people on TV. Makeup, lighting and airbrushing are used sparingly. This has not affected how disinclined I am to watch TV. When I do, every other commercial is for cheese or chocolate.
