rikshaw : meter

I spend a lot of my time in rikshaws, and this is what i stare at most of the time! Fares are quite cheap - this fare is equal to about .50 cents (USD). (To read the meters you take away the 0 and then subtract 1 from the number shown - so this fare was 21 rupees. They are old machines that have never been updated.) Posted by Picasa

I don't know if you've noticed, but these wonderfully maniacal rick drivers of ours sit a little sideways while driving.
