Pedicab Driver On Vehicle

The pedicab driver waited for customers to come while fiddling his smartphone

Went back to the main street in the town. I started to walk the street again. And I moved to the opposite side of the town center. As soon as I started to walk, the number of shops became markedly reduced. And the number of pedestrians also became reduced. The street became more tranquil. Yet there were still some pedicab drivers waiting for customers by the roadside. The man in this photo was one of them.

He sat on his vehicle and watched his smartphone. To play with the electric device was a nice way to kill time. And it might be much funnier than pedaling the pedicab. Even though I approached the driver, he didn't cast an eye on me and kept playing with his gear. He seemed to be absorbed in playing with his smartphone. And I worried that he missed the chance of business when he acted that way.
