What do you do to pass the time, when your six-hour bus ride turns into an 11-hour tardy and sweaty journey?
You creep and watch the world go by!
At a dead stop on the winding road returning from trekking in Langtang National Park or at a snail’s pace in the Kathmandu traffic, I had many opportunities.But it was the colourful Nepalese Tata trucks that captivated my attention.
Hand decorated with paint, the mobile works of art helped pass the time.
I’m not sure who the message ‘GOOD LUCK’ is meant for?
The artists’ even sign their handiwork.
There is so much to admire on a journey, notice everything! – Ginette

vous êtes vraiment chanceux. Bravo
Just wow! Look what you would have missed if you had been moving faster. The painted trucks are incredible works of art.
There’s no time for naps or reading, there is so much too see. Travelling is tiresome! Haha!! I’ll be able to rest when I return home! 🙂
I’m with you, Ginette. A camera and a good book are necessities of travel, and they just might get you through an umpteen hour delay. Note: I did use the word, might. 🙂 The photos you managed to capture are fun, however. –Curt
Thanks Curt. Luckily, on the bus ride, I wasn’t buried into a book as is often the case, I would have missed the fun Tata trucks. – Ginette
