Gone To Market


A housewife rides home in a tuktuk, a motorcycle with a cab on it basically, with a load of groceries purchased from a souq near Imbaba.

I heard of a "tuktuk" on a BBC report, but had no idea what it was. Thanks for the picture. Is the motorcycle in front?

It looks like she is having a lot of fun too. On the portal I thought it looked like an old fashioned car.

The back wheels of the tuktuk are mounted like training wheels over the back wheels of the motorbike and the cab is built over it all. The driver actually steers with motorcycle handlbars.

I didn't realise that the tuktuk had made its way to Cairo!
