There is s saying that ” when poor, improvise.. When improvise, everything will be OK”（ 穷则变). You don’t have to be rich to be innovative.
I am posting a few photos here , sent to me via email. In the email, it was stated that the photos were taken by French Photographer, Alain Delorme.
Look at these ordinary people. They are not rich. They cannot afford a lorry or a van. But they can carry goods as much as a small truck..
I remember when I was small, we did see some of these things in Malaysia, maybe the goods were not stacked as high as these, but tricycles stacked full of goods were quite common. Of course, it may pose a danger to other road users if the whole stack collapses or if the cyclist falls.
We may admire the innovative spirits of these poor people, especially when we are sitting behind a computer and looking at these; or as bystanders looking from the side-walk.
However, if you are a driver in a car following these, you may not be amused by these . See how our viewpoints can change depending which side of the table we are sitting..
