20 Minutes to Denpasar

Unboxed

The streets of Denpasar are flooded with scooters. They're cheaper than cars, and many, many more of them can fit on the roads. Swarms of riders travel the streets, flowing around lumbering cars and trucks like water around boulders. It is amazing to watch.The traffic is different to the congestion we have in our car-dominated world. While waiting, people talk, look around and interact. Not isolated in their rolling metal boxes, they are free to engage -- the riders are a different kind of community.
