Transport in so many ways


The typical transport in Asian countries is the 3 wheeler. The tuk tuk.

When we visit our friends in Balapitiya we take one and when we go back to hotel our friends come with us.U cant belief this but we sit with 6 persons  ( exclusiv the driver) in that small tuk tuk.

For our projects its also a perfect transport But when we drive i often close my eyes.

When we go to Aluthgama we always meet a couple .

Very old..I dont have idea abt their age. But when they see us they smile from ear to ear.

The man is sitting in wheelchair.  As i work in low cure hospital i see electric wheel chairs with all kinds of adaptations,  and then when i see this man i think   see the man smile with his wife pushing the chair. Next time when we go  I will make his wheel compleet again.

    To think so many people have so little is something that makes me feel angry, but at the same time thankful for all i have…

    Love and hugs!

  4. A wonderful man with a heartwarming smile!

  5. I remember the Tuk Tuk.. lol and although i didnt get that happy experience LOL.. I saw many piled high with many things, including one day someone who had departed this world laying horizontal. And whole families riding bicycles… Now I did drive all the way south of the island with my Boss’s chauffer a journey I will never forget.. as there seem to be not rules upon the road expect Cattle come first! .. One memorial part of that journey was that my boss stopped the car as a man went to work on his elephant near the forest… I was greeted by a huge smile and invited to take photos and to climb upon the elephant.. I gave this man much to my bosses ‘Disapproval’ he equivalent of two weeks wages to the man an elephant for the photo snap.. I didn’t climb due to wearing a dress and the elephant looked more than in need of a bath lol… But you brought back some wonderful memories of beautiful people..
    Love Sue xxx
