You find cool technology... I was seriously blown away by all the gadgets they had. Like this touch screen subway map. It works like Google Maps. Choose your start point and end point, and it'll tell you what lines and stops to take. There were a bunch of other functions too. It was extremely useful. We should have this in the States!The subway stations have these glass doors that open when the trains arrive. They installed them to prevent people from falling or jumping onto the tracks. What a smart idea. I'm always paranoid that some kid will get too close to the edge of the platform and fall down...or like that freak accident in Australia last year where a stroller rolled in front of an oncoming train! Oh, never will you find flat screen tv screens mounted like this here. (See top of photo.) Some punk kid will undoubtedly steal them. Haha.All SUVs and vans had these mirrors in the back. We couldn't figure out why they would need them...to see inside?? We discovered that they're actually quite ingenious. It helps you with parallel parking! You can see the back bumper. Another nifty gadget I saw were the huge GPS's all the cabs had. It indicated their speed and when they go over the limit, the screen flashes and the voice says to slow down. Haha. Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of them.
Next, I'll show you guys all the delicious, authentic food we had. Mmm... stay tuned!
