. . .is a sleeping cyclo driver ~ Hue, Vietnam
Dec 03 2001

On every corner in any town tourists have ever been to, cyclo drivers will call out the refrain familiar to anyone who has visited Vietnam. "Hello. . where you from . . where you going . . cyclo cheap for you . . one dollar one hour . . " We are trained to answer peoples greetings and respond to peoples questions so it takes ages to make it down a street answering all these inane questions no-one is interested in hearing the answer to. Especially when the ultimate answer is almost always "No thankyou, we just want to walk". It took almost two weeks before we felt comfortable just shaking our heads and then ignoring them.
