Yes, it is that time of the year again. Brace yourself for long periods of traffic and sporadically blocked streets. Twitter and Facebook feeds get crowded with pleads to go down and protest. The delivery guy tells you he can’t deliver your lunch because you are in a “hot zone”. After a while, you start experiencing phantom chants and shouting. Ah, the smell of tear gas with the black smoke, it’s been a while. In this time of hardship, traffic apps are your only friends.
