Chariots Of Fire!!! An Old Water Buffalo Drawn Cart. (Story Within).

Discovered this old beauty at the waterless falls.
Maybe a lot slower than a motorised drawn trailer today?
However it is just as useful and it does cost a lot less to run.
It is built from natural materials from the land except for the metal rim
around the wheels.
Its power source is grass and water, against the petroleum used for the
Motorised version.
It has hundreds of fewer working parts, than it counterpart.
Yet both pollute our air, one with carbon emissions and the other methane gas.
My question, have we advanced that much over the last two thousand years???
Have a wonderful day and may all your thoughts be healthy and happy ones.
Walkabout-John. Vientiane, Laos.

    Hi John,
    a very nice cart - reminds me of my childhood, cause I grew up in the country ;-)
    It's a fact that carts are not pretty effective, but their power source is renewable - unlike the petroleum.
