rickshaws and photos

1am and still sitting at the office. people working like crazy to get the paper ready for the morning. if you're interested, just go to http://www.rajasthanpatrika.com to see if they've done it well enough.

hope i'll find a "rickshaw" back home. (rickshaw /n/ : a small two-wheeled cart for one passenger; pulled by one person.) car taxi doesn't exist in jaipur. you have to choose between bike or motorcycle rickshaws - i've always taken the second one so far. haven't got used to the idea of using manpower as a means of pulling vehicles yet. and i probably never will. yesterday we were going to an aiesec dinner with my roommate, and we took a cycle rickshaw. it felt more than weird to sit there at the back while the "driver" was pulling two of us (sometimes uphill) for maybe like 3-4 kilometres. for 20 rupees. less than half a US dollar. i do know that he does need that money more than anything. which one is better; taking it or not taking it - i don't know. but not taking is easier, that's for sure.

i've really missed spending time on the net. just finished uploading some pics from GOA - coming next: bombay. i'm going in reverse order for some reason, but i guess i couldn't resist playing with goa pics first. i probably miss it more than bombay or bahrain, that should be why.
