Man Sleeping On Saiq-ka

A man slept on his vehicle by the roadside

There are many bicycle rickshaws running the streets of Yangon. This city is emerging. So many automobiles also run. Yet old-fashioned transport is still used by many locals people. The shape of bicycle rickshaws is different from the cycle rickshaws running in India. A small seat is attached next to the main body of the bicycle. And the locals call it Saiq-ka, which derives from English 'Sidecar'.

Walking a lane, I found a Saiq-ka parked by the wayside. And its driver slept well on his vehicle. Although it was still morning, he seemed to be exhausted already. Or he drunk so much last night. A plastic sheet was placed on the seat and his sandals were put on the sheet with neatness. The driver might be well-organized.
