Lao tourist "bus"

Lao tourist "bus"
While heading south from Pakse, we found ourselves behind this wagon, apparently carrying local tourists to Wat Phu, which also was our destination. I guess maybe I've taken road safety too seriously for too long, but what struck me was the way the passengers travelled, including free standing on the rear of the wagon or tucked into brackets on the rear sides. The PiP shows us all arriving at Wat Phu. I think the passenger in the skirt had moved inside by then ...

Interesting to see that platform at the back. I remember buses in Paris having an open platform at the back in the sixties. We often travelled on it and people would run and catch the moving bus. Different ways and different times.

Totally astonishing!! Steve has told me a million stories of the insanely unsafe things he saw in the Philippines during the 6 mo's he was there. It's just boggling. But I think, because it's a way of life--they don't give their outrageous danger any thought--they likely don't get injured as much. You know how, if you're scared out of your mind or you know what you're doing is not safe but you're going to do it anyway, you're much likelier to get hurt--funny how that is but it's certainly true. So those conditions in the US I'm sure would be fraught with zillions of injuries but in Laos, it's no biggy and everyone is fine. *shakes head* I think I'll take the safer course, tyvm! :D

TY for the great writing too, you really know how to fill your photos with colorful prose! :)

Hi George

A very nice and interesting picture, which I really like

It kind of reminds me of other third world countries where a whole family manages to balance on a 250cc motorbike!

Best Wishes, a nice weekend, and stay safe!!
