Disclaimer – I LOVE Math. Every morning I take a tuk tuk to work. For those who don’t know what a tuk tuk is, it’s a 3 wheel motorized vehicle used as a taxi. Despite its perfect dimensions to squeeze through the narrowest of lanes, there are days when my luck isn’t great and I get caught in a traffic jam for hours. Now, how do I entertain myself?
