Cyclo, Ho Chi Minh City

With few scooters and even fewer cars, everything was pedal power. Three-wheeled bikes called Cyclo’s were everywhere and used to move everything: bread, newspapers, goats, watermelons, schoolgirls, bananas, Pho sellers, ducks, charcoal, or the mornings catch of fish. Cyclo drivers were lean and taught but demand was often early so they had plenty of time to doze during the heat of the day.
