This was inevitable

The narrow roads, the number of cars, the way they drive here, it's hard to explain how this could have happened only for the first time today.

We were in a car accident.

It was a small one. We are unhurt and the car didn't have any visible damage because the real bumper took the hit.

We were at the bottom of a hill stopped by heavy traffic when WHAM we were hit from behind.

"Merde!" our driver shouted.

Del and I are expecting stiff necks tomorrow. I was in the back without a seat belt, which wasn't smart.

It was all very civilized. Both cars pulled over and the drivers exchanged information. Turns out the offending driver was a new permit holder.
