Vietnam Reflections

Vietnam Reflections

Snapped this near Cholon Market .  The kid was getting ready to strap this to his motorbike and transport it.  Let’s hope he doesn’t falter as that is a lot of bad luck!

    Wow, that is a great photo. I remember people carrying the craziest stuff on their motorbikes. In Hue we saw 4 pigs wrapped in wire laying on a plank on the back of a bike. After a while, we started to wonder if we really saw that many. Maybe it was only 2, but I swear it was 4. We didn’t have the camera out in time to snap a shot. Wish we did, it is hard to believe.

    @theplanetd – I have no doubt that you saw 4 pigs! Have you seen the book Bikes of Burden? It’s awesome – a photo book of all the crazy stuff people carry on their motorbikes here – I love it! http://www.ottsworld.com/blogs/the-motorbike-diaries-vol-7/
    Thanks for following!

  3. Amazing, Really great pic. I saw many people who carried the heaviest and craziest thing on motorbikes. I can’t do this in my life.
