Creative Border Transport

June 26, 2012

Travel Tuesday: “Creative Border Transport”

Location:  No-man’s-land between Cambodia and Thailand (Poipet)

In Poipet, Cambodia the Thai officials don’t let the Cambodian’s use vehicles to transport good across the border, so they build their own push-carts.  This push cart is being steered by a young boy carrying goods across the border.  He can either pedal or steer with his hand controls.  Oddly enough, he is under a UN-ILO (International Labor Organization) sign which says, “Eliminating the worst forms of child labor by 2016”.  Looks like he has a few more years to work!
