View from the inside

I posted a photo of a tricycle, the king of Manila's smaller roads, back in March. This is what it looks like inside the sidecar when you're a passenger. We were riding down Katipunan Avenue (yes, Avenue—five lanes wide each way) in Quezon City which has signs every hundred meters or so saying that "Tricycles are not allowed on the whole length of Katipunan."

wow, I love all those different perspectives. Just like being there! Great angle too. Also like your new banner up top. Hmmm. How did you put all those individual pics in there? Neat.

Interesting view. Too bad you can't actually see out the window. Or maybe that's a good thing?

That would make me crazy if I couldn't see where I was going. Then again, if the traffic is wild, perhaps ignorance is bliss.

Thank you for you comments on my blog recently.
