As I stopped on the side of the road to watch the traffic, a number of cycle rickshaws drove past me. They all seemed to be very busy. It is said that there are more than 400,000 cycle rickshaws in Dhaka, a big city, but even so, there seems to be too many to keep up with the demand.

One reason for this may be that cycle rickshaws are used not only as a means of transportation, but also as a means of transport. The cycle rickshaw in the photo was carrying two passengers as well as a large piece of luggage.
