Photo of the Day: Vietnam Bicycle

You can't visit a Vietnamese city without noticing how everyone who lives there seems to get around by motorcycle or scooter. No less an authority than Wikipedia puts the stats of the largest city, Saigon, as nearly two motorbikes (or "moto") for every three people. But as Dream Trip entrant Ajleifer discovered in the capital of Hanoi, not everyone has jumped on the fossil-fuel bandwagon.
"The woman behind the bike appears to be waiting for someone in the middle of a busy street," writes Ajleifer in the Dream Trip entry "Just an Average Day." "The photograph captures the patience of a woman against the traffic. She has not given in to the new way of doing things but instead sticks with her ways of daily shopping for fresh produce and her traditional bicycle."
