British Impatience!

One of the most annoying aspect of Debrecen is the traffic light system, as you can see from the picture there timed. Basically you stand there and count down to zero and the green man comes on - when they hit three everybody starts moving forward to the edge of the pavement....and BANG there off green man comes on, as you are walking you are keeping your eyes on the numbers which are now in green counting down again hoping you are fast enough to get across before there red again!
After just over two weeks of being here and as typical impatient British people we now (as you would in England) wait until there are no cars coming and cross anyway - instigating the shocked look of the locals at our apparent lack of road safety. There are some customs we can adopt, unfortunately being patient is not one.

Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock
