bad drivers

I shared a minivan with these 2 characters. I always carry tapes with me for trips like this. Nothing better that to be tooling around Tibet listening to Bob Willis, Pedro Infante, or Sinatra. Usually I stick to older stuff as the reaction to anything post 1970 is generally negative. But these guys were so naturally punk rock it was out of control. So I tried a tape with some standards by the Clash, the Ramones, The Stooges, Tom Waits, Velvet Underground and so on. The fellow on the left just went crazy when he heard this stuff and at the end of 12 hours was doing passable renditions of Sheena is Punk at the top of his lungs.


The 3 words he knew in English otherwise were: "Hello" and "fuck you." He repeated the later two constantly, giggling maniacally while swerving all over the road..
