Trucks of India

Trucks of India1

Because I am prone to carsickness, I sat in the front seat of the cars we hired, and chatted with the drivers. I fell in love with the trucks of India! They were colorful, with messages to sound the horn, and which side to pass on, and their ownership and make, and even where they’re from.

For instance, around Tiruvannamalai, many trucks had fire on the mountain painted on their back. Around Pondicherry, there were three circles. In other places, rectangles with scenery, or birds, or whatever. I’m convinced this showed where they were from.

I didn’t get many photos of the fronts of trucks, unfortunately, but they were often even more exciting. Enjoy!
