How is everyone? December 13, 2005 9:54 PM

On any given day, I'll see an average of 7 prius in our town. They are so quiet I've noticed when I walk by them and they are stopped at a stop sign. Silence has never sounded so good. :)  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Hello Jen They are amazingly quiet aren't they! Well, I've moved to the Middle East instead of back to Canada. I've looked and can't find a single local dealer selling any hybrid car. So much for my wish to buy a Prius this year! The driving is crazy here - the highest accident and death rates in the region. Every time we've been on the road we've almost been in an accident. I already got jolted hard with the seatbelt after a car cut in front of the taxi I was riding in, so the driver slammed on the breaks. We got nicked from the back too. (I've only been here two weeks!) So many people drive SUV's so that they are more protected in case of an accident. On top of that, there are a lot of rich people here, so they drive sports cars, Hummers, and other gas-guzzling luxury cars. Hubby and I are renting a small car right now, but have to decide what to do about purchasing a car. We might end up buying an environmentally higher-rated small SUV, and also only have one car instead of two, which means driving one another to work if one needs the car during the day. We'll do our best. Don't even get me started on the lack of recycling here, and the use of water and electricity! I'm in touch with a local evironmental organisation that is trying to make efforts to combat all of this, so I hope to volunteer my time with that group once I get settled.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Wow, BA T. That sounds crazy (the accident that happen there). Good for you getting involved in encouraging a more conscience atmosphere.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
