Spotted on Indonesia's roads...

It is now something of a cliche that the humble motor-scooter is used as a cargo vehicle on Southeast Asia's roads; nonetheless the following are all pictures I've taken from the car in the last few days rather than being borrowed from existing websites.

Among the things we've seen have been a mobile restaurant:

A year's supply of snacks:


A delivery round's-worth of electrical appliances:


And an entire village's fuel supply:

It's the same here. Expect to see a horse's year's supply of hay on the back of one next.

Young Farmers descending on Lampeter University on disco night. Dozens on each Land Rover, gripping one another's sideburns. Nature at its most aromatic.

Bubur a yam? What kind of invitation is that?

Gadjo - I've seen that in the past but failed to snap one this time; I did, however, video a man carrying a year's supply of hay on his head.

Boyo - An impressive comment, containing horror in every word...

Inkspot - "Bubur ayam" is a type of rice porridge with chicken, popular as a breakfast dish. They should have me on "Call My Bluff", shouldn't they?

The restaurant's a good idea. You'd always get a seat with a view.
