= transport, Goan style.
I took this photo from the inside of a branch of “Cafe Coffee Day”, a national chain which is India’s answer to Starbucks and where their equivalent of a “grande” latte is about 50p.
(Don’t go there with the skinny, decaff, no whip stuff, though; even a latte takes about half an hour to prepare, without further complicating the process).
Anyway, back to the photo; if you look closely, you can see that the first woman (with her hands up, tying her hair back) has a baby attached to her in a sling and the woman on the left is holding a toddler. A few moments later, they fired up the scooter, wedged the toddler onto the seat between them and roared off. No helmets, of course – they don’t seem to be in use by anyone here.
