Over the past few weeks, I have been amazed at some of the objects that I have seen strapped onto the back of, as well as the sides, front, and bottom of motorbikes in Vietnam. When something needs to be transported, it is either really large, or there are many of them (or, in most cases, both at the same time). Unfortunately, most of the very impressive loads I have witnessed have been in passing while driving through the countryside, so I haven’t had much chance to photograph them. So, in an effort to convey some sense of these phenomena, I walked out today to the corner of a relatively active intersection in Hue, a city in central Vietnam, and within half an hour managed to capture the following shots.
I present this as simply an introduction, and hope that over my remaining three weeks and roughly 1,500 remaining kilometers of motorcycling in Vietnam, I am able to catch a few more. Stay tuned!
