Circus on wheels

Circus on wheels

Colorful contraptions like this patrol the streets of Jakarta, hoping to attract the wide-eyed children who are drawn to it with awe. As the driver pedals, the ‘vehicles’ rhythmically bounce up and down in tune with the birthday techno music pumping out of the bike’s roof.

Street life is never dull in Jakarta.

    That is pretty cool!

    I saw one like that around my neighborhood back then, though it wasn’t as colorful as this one. Indonesian vendors are creative…hehe

  • I love the picture. I haven’t seen this in Vietnam , although I’m sure a few cyclo drivers would be interested in the idea.
