Commuting - Another Option

Now here's a sight you will almost NEVER see in India - helipads on highrise buildings. I believe all highrises that house or even expect to house Americans are required to have helipads for emergency evacuations.

While that might be an urban legend or simply someone cocking a snook at paranoid Westerners, the fact is that almost all the large office and apartment blocks in Makati have helipads and I've seen at least a couple of choppers landing. Our building has one too, though it might be a while before I start using the services to beat the traffic.
