Man Leaning Back On Motorbike

Young man leaning back on motorbike

The young man leaned back on the motorcycle by the roadside

Shot in the city of Bago, Myanmar.

Some motorbikes were parked by the roadside. And a young man leaned back on one of the vehicles. Apparently, he was a motorcycle taxi driver and waited for customers coming there. It was an idle time for him. So he was lazy and relax on his vehicle. Even though I approached him, he seemed to know I was not his customer. And he asked for hiring, neither. He just looked straight at my camera.

By the way, the city of Bago was called Pegu until 1991 throughout the British era. It was renamed by the military regime at that time. I wondered why the authority wanted to change the name. Perhaps, it wanted to show the fact it controlled the city by changing the name. Anyway, those who were muddled were local people.
