Waiting for passengers

I'm lucky to live in a relatively organized neighborhood. The tricycles waiting for passengers near the closest bus terminal don't clog the street where they wait in line. In fact, they got permission from a couple of government agencies to use the space behind their walls as a terminal of sorts. Our tricycles are also color-coded depending on where they can go and where they can wait. I've already posted a couple of photos of tricycles: see a closer view of one in "Tricycle" and a passenger's view of the street from inside a tricycle in "View from the inside."

That is quite a collection. You can see history there in the bikes.

I liked your inside shots, now this outside shot gives me some perspective on the whole experience.

The picture reminds me to my home country, North Sumatera (in Indonesia). Tricycle is very common in North Sumatera. A region called Pematang Siantar has a very similar tricycle like the one in this picture.

Great shot!
