Road Kings: Mobile Works of Art

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.DSC_0856DSC_0811DSC_0014DSC_0802IMG_3460But it was the colourful Nepalese Tata trucks that captivated my attention.

Hand decorated with paint, the mobile works of art helped pass the time.

  1. Just wow! Look what you would have missed if you had been moving faster. The painted trucks are incredible works of art.

  2. 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
