smoking a cig, originally uploaded by c_p_lew.

The 80 km. trip (about 50 miles) trip takes nearly 5 hours. The road serves as a river bed during the rainy season, so it's badly rutted with big rocks everywhere. We passed these guys taking the scenic route - riding in the back of a tok-tok, a two wheeled tractor hitched up to a cart. The guys in the back were takin' it easy, smoking cigarettes. There was another guy stretched out in the front. Although it would probably taken them two full days - with stops to cook meals, pit stops, and stops just to take stops - it's probably much more comfortable.
