Photographer's Note

The Vietnamese call them “Xich Lo” after the French word “cyclo”. It was hi-tech at one time and now it is too old. What you see is an endanger specie. The Vietnamese government considers banding them because the street of Vietnam is too clogged up. There is already discussion of saving some for nostalgic purpose. I used to use them for transportation to school when I was kid. It is hard when they go against the wind. My sister and I used to jump down and pushed them. When our parents found out about it, they were mad at us. They bring me many sweet memories. So next time when you see them, it is worth taking a ride. Don’t worry the poor man behind it. He is strong and he has a chance to earn a living.
