2 - 10. TRAFFIC!

With the battery 93% charged Green Car drives around 200 km, so we did not have the need for a lunch-time charging break today. The provincial road ran between a railroad and a canal - and at times diverted by roadworks unto small muddy village roads. The traffic is dense, we meet cars, busses, trucks, motorbikes, all kinds of three-wheelers from heavy, thumping beasts of burden to tiny cars, electric bikes, pedestrians and humans pulling all kinds of loads - and all this moving in both directions all over the road. And don't forget all the vehicles cutting in from the sides saved by a hefty overdose of horn-blasting and the mavericks crossing the red light or going the wrong way through the roundabouts. After hours of hectic holiday traffic we reached the big town of Bang Bu in Anhui province. We were overtaken, undertaken and inner-taken. But so far Green Car has not got a single bruise.
