Day 1 to 5 recap
Oh me oh my, this place is insane and amazing all at the same time. We’ve been trucking along without any real troubles. We’ve had a few things wrong with the rickshaw, but all have been easily fixed. The people here are so nice and very quick to help. We’ve been alternating driving thru small tines and a Bit of highway driving, maxing out our speed at about 50km/hr. Everyday is like being in a parade, the whole town comes to the road as we drive thru, waving and cheering and taking pictures. We can’t stop anywhere too long or it becomes a mob scene. We are pretty sure we will get back to New York and walk down the street waving at people. We are quite the site, three decorated rickshaws full of white people, esp us being three girls. We are still with our original caravan of two Canadians and two English guys, we make a pretty good group. I’ve somehow become the boss, I give the orders and everyone falls in line. The driving is pretty insane, there are no real rules and people are just all over the road.
