Photographer's Note

This picture is taken in the old part of bandung were you can see the old dutch architecture. Even if theoraticly the pedicabs are banned for the big streets they are still widely used and they often bend the rules. In indonesia the pedicabs are named becak and i was told they have been in use for over 40 years(more then that for sure). This particular on model of rickshaw is the one who won the public favor, it gradually replaced the other smaller models and is now found all over java.
Riding in a becak is a very nice experiance, especially at dusk in small backlane streets.
Nowadays becaks are mainly used by housewifes coming home from the market, by small childrens going to school or by people lazy to walk from the main road to theyre house located in small alleys or housing complexes, the weather is very hot in the day time.
No co2 emmissions.....
