Now THAT would be somethinbg to write home about, DB. How fun it would be to ride in that! Actually, I wouldn't mind being the driover. :)

Mumsy said...

That is just a beautiful cycle and looks so unique!

Susan said...

I love the "Foreign Cargo" on the back! I need to get a job pedaling one of these...maybe I could lose a little weight! Great pictures, dutchbaby!

Looks like there is a interesting history with this bike taxi. I'm intriqued.

Ruth said...

I would like to know more about the foreign cargo. What a cool vehicle. I guess in a way all cargo is foreign. :)

Dear Yoli,
Thank you! I selected one of the background colors of my header photo for my background color.

Dear Ginnie,
Believe it or not, my two sisters and I used to go to school in one of these "betjaks" when we were little girls in Java. None of them were painted as pretty as this one, though.

How fun would it be to ride one of these in flat Holland? More so than in hilly San Francisco, to be certain!

Relyn said...

If I put the pieces together correctly, this rickshaw was spotted in Connecticut, yes? How great is that??

dutchbaby said...

Dear Mumsy,
Thank you and welcome to dutchbaby!

Dear Susan,
That would be quite the job :)

Dear melissashook,
I think bicycle speed is the perfect rate to see the scenery.

Dear maggie,
I don't know the history of this particular bicycle; it's being used as advertising for an art gallery in Connecticut.

Dear Ruth,

This rickshaw was parked in front of an art gallery. The sign in front of the building is here.

Dear Relyn,
Excellent, go to the head of the class! But wait, you already are! Yes, I spotted this whimsical vehicle in Kent, Connecticut last year.

Here, There, Elsewhere... and more said...

Wow ! Love this post, your photos are awesome !
You're so lucky to have rickshaws in the States, even only as means of advertising/promotion, they certainly make quite a statement..!
Can't wait to get back here asap and catch up on all your posts I've missed in my (blogland) absence ...

dutchbaby said...

Dear Here, There,
Welcome back! I've missed you!

There are modern rickshaws in San Francisco. You can be peddled around along the waterfront between the Ferry Building and Fisherman's Wharf.
