Friday night traffic chaos + nice local house....

This photos was taken from my office building, on Friday night recently.  This among teh main junction in the city and there are traffic lights.... but the traffic just chaotic.... 
Just imagine yourself driving or riding bike or ... taking chance crossing the road.  I saw there are two traffic police officer manning the traffic...  but the traffic just seem uncontrollable... probably in our outsider eyes... For the local, it's normal day as usual.... 
Police traffic here has such a magic power when controlling the traffic... probably the obedience of the peoples or the harsh punishment if you disobey... 
We visit a few sites today, and I was quite amazed with the nice houses in this area.. the design probably influenced by the French...  I could saw they have small fruits orchard,  vegetable gardens and reared a few chickens...  Even rich people here reared chickens... 
Most of the house have the national flag... perhaps belong to important party member.....

A unique view from the top. It's like fireflies at a junction. I couldn't imagine the hassle and the amount of time I need if I were to be down there trying to cross the junction.

It seems that you are in very high above ground when taking the pictures. Must be quite a tall building.

About the traffic chaos, some says it is a sign of progress. Some says it is because of incompetence management of traffic lights/road.

I guess if you are down there among the crowd, most likely you would be thinking.......
