    Some pictures from my trip to India of ride sharing, seat belts not needed here! I guess it keeps a few cars off the road. Maybe we should try this here. What do you think?

    Plenty of foot room on this ride.

    A nice view out the back.

    Just room for one more.

    This is almost a bus.

    Please don't go over any bumps, and what's with the half seat on the side?

    This is one way to bring your farm animals with you. I love the smiles here. :) Nice bike too.

    I think it's just a truck load of people traveling together.

    Here is a comment from my Facebook on these pictures.

    Where I come from we say "there is space at the back, push, push" and that is how we got to go from one place to another for years! People prefer to use public transportation and since labor is cheap in other countries; you just raise your arm and someone stops to check if you are going in the same direction and offers a ride at a small price. You can even get a taxi for the day. Not here of course! Maybe for a Honeymoon you guys go to Peru most turistic areas and have a wonderful time. Margarita
