Four to a Scooter

In Bali, driving from Nusa Dua to Denpasar. The ratio of scooters to cars is much higher than in Japan. While that in itself isn't a surprise, my first time seeing the scooters and cars speeding down long, traffic light-sparse stretches of road and duking it out for driving space was a bit of a shock. The generally passive act of gazing out the window suddenly turned into a nerve-inducing experience.

At first I thought this woman was clutching a stuffed animal for comfort.

Turns out, it was her baby.
