    India transportation. It's anything with wheels. I didn't see any sleds.
    Here are some of my favorite pictures that Sue and I took in India.

    Lots of these on the roads. I love how the drivers fix them up. There are no two trucks that look the same. They want you to honk at them too, just to let them know you are back there somewhere.

    this one is a little slower and carries less. We normally see these just in town. Rickshaw

    [​IMG]

    This is a Tuk-Tuk or motorized rickshaw, Notice the heart logo?

    [​IMG]

    And plenty of motorcycles mixing it up on the road. Many times with two or more riders, and sometimes entire families.

    We didn't take this train. There was an executive train after this one left the station.

    Very cool pictures. Hope you had a good time. I guess that is the way our transportation system will look in a few weeks after the “sequester” kicks in. lol

    They "want" you to blow your horn at them!
    And at night, your "dippers". High/low beam.

    There is always room for goats on the road.

    What kind of tires are those on front? Tractor pulling a trailer.

    [​IMG]

    I have no idea what this one is.

    [​IMG]

    Did they paint the Taj Mahal on the back?

    [​IMG]

    Did I say they use the horn a lot?

    I've read a report that India will pass China, which will pass the USA, as the leader of the world in something that I don't remember...
    My question is: how?
    Yes the pics are beautiful and colorful. But how is India going to pass China?
