Daily Wanderlust: Hauling goods in Chiang Mai

Written by on September 26, 2012 in Asia, Thailand - 4 Comments

In many ways, life in Chiang Mai is far simpler than in America. For example, I don’t have a car here. I walk nearly everywhere. And, so do others.

On the way home from a day spend at Save Elephant Foundation, I came across this man who was hauling a cart full of wooden chairs somewhere. It struck me as beautiful.

Why?

Because it is like nothing I would ever see in America, or likely many other western countries. Simple. Getting the job done.

    my favourites are the guys here in BKK with their pedal powered mobile broom stores …blithely pedalling along the main road with so many brooms, dustpans and asst household goods on the cart in front of them they surely cannot see where they are going !
