Travel Photo Thursday Feb 24th.

It's Travel Photo Thursday again and on Budget Travelers Sandbox Nancie has a great picture up for Travel Photo Thursday.  Check it out and follow the links to all the other bloggers posting up great travel photos as they join in also.
Since it's food and markets, I'll browse through our photos for something interesting. Be back soon to post it up!


OK. I found this - How to Deliver A Refrigerator in Vietnam.

Hanoi August 2001
Just tie it on the pillion seat of course!

My Gawd. This happens quite frequently in India as well.

Joy always,

That is quite normal! You should see the ways and means that people have come up with here in India to transport things....

Jim said...

Hi Yogasavy and Susan, yes it amazes we Westerners how ingenious transportation can be in Asian countries. In our highly(overly?) regulated world we'd never get away with that.

Is there any other way to transport refrigerators.

I mean really?

Cheers A

Reminds me of when I bought a stove for my ex's family in Honduras!

I think we can find this scene mostly in Asia... I'll be surprised though if I find it in US or Europe or even Australia and New Zealand... This is quite common in my country as well... Thank you for sharing Jim. :)

Oops, we supposed to do food and markets this week? Well, you got the fridge. I mentioned ice cream in my post. That count?
Great cultural photography shot !

Mary said...

You wouldn't think that little thing could hold a refrigerator. How funny:) But I guess, it's just what you are used to in any particular country.

Leigh said...

The stuff they load on the back of their motorbikes defies description. A refrigerator - unbelievable.

Debbie said...

Great pic Jim, curious is that the companies delivery guy? Either way interesting method of transporting a frig!

Jim said...

When our son was doing his 6 month traffic control stint in our NZ Police Force he sent this off to his police boss and said he let the guy off with a written warning. I think the photo may be pinned up somewhere in police headquarters now.
