Taloqan Zaranj

This is the coolest form of transport in town. These pickup motorcycles are all over the country - they're a motorcycle front but turned into a tricycle with little flat bed. You see them used to haul melons from one place to another, or similar tasks. But in Taloqan (and probably other places, they cover the truck bed, put on some gaudy decorations, and -- Pow!-- instant taxi. It's sort of like a tuk-tuk... but different. None of the ones in Taloqan that I saw were decorated with the same gusto as those farther West, which will hopefully be illustrated some time soon.
