Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Anything to do with bikes, trikes or motorcycles
In Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) at last count, there were 47 million “motos” and 3 million cars. Incredible. We saw everything being transported, and even families of four balanced on one small motorcycle. And they rule the road, so you’d better get out of the way.
This is a blurry photo, taken as we zipped by in a bus, but I just had to include it as an example of the livestock we saw being routinely transported by motorbike.
In India, we saw more cars, but still so many families on motorbikes. It was hard to even watch the way the babies and small children were being transported (and to think of the contrast with how we restrain them in cars here in the US). I always wondered how the Indian women kept their beautiful saris from getting caught up in the motorcycle mechanism.
Love this post.,,encouraged me to check through my photos for bikes I saw in Asia.
Likely not an easy place to be driving.
Not for the fainthearted – that’s for sure!
You have to be confident in your driving skills before you drive in these places, I’m sure.
Wonderful photos of bikes for this week. 😀
