Also referred to tuk-tuk’s , Indian autorickshaw  is basically a three wheeled motorised  vehicle, with a canvas roof and a few seats. Usually it provides room for two passengers, but most of the times it transports many more bodies squezzed in.

First of all, before you enter the tuk-tuk, you discuss the price for your destination, yo uhave to make a deal, some oft them charge very differently. Also making sure they know the address where you wanted to go, at times some drivers had to ask other people on the road about directions. This didn’t bother me at all, it was more about my trust, that I will securely arrive at my decided destination and I always did.

Speed level is not a question riding a tuk-tuk, you’d think those tiny vehicles move smoothly in a lower speed , oh no, and all the fumes you get to inhale….. at times I had to cover my face…

    Oh my gosh, what an experience!

  2. Great post, Cornelia. It made me feel like I was right there. Is the traffic as insane as it looks in the photos?

    • Thank you so very much Carol, I am glad that you enjoyed it. India a really beautiful country, oh yes the traffic is crazy for our standards, yet I got used to it, just going with the flow. What’s really bad is the air pollution for example in Delhi, most of the times I covered my mouth.

  3. These photos really take us there.
    Thanks
