From John: Here are some examples of how crowded things can get here in Jinan with people, cars, bikes and buses. People are patient with incredibly high traffic of stop and go, and to my knowledge, there's no road rage! Also, merchants are on the streets cooking up a storm to sell food during their 5 p.m. rush making it even more crowded, all the while people in the background are flying their kites miles into the sky.
Another packed bus!
PS from Reva - I'll just add that Dad grew up near New York City, so he KNOWS traffic!
