Siesta of Rickshaw Drivers

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Alessandro Pugi

The level of physical effort to run a rickshaw for the busy roads of Kathmandu is quite high, especially in the tourist season. Depending on the morning workload, you may really need some recovery time in the mid of the day, so I was not surprised to see these exhausted drivers sleeping on their rickshaws.

Location: Kathmandu, Nepal
