Truck Rider

By handlerstudio  
This is an image neglected when I did my Peru series a few months back. This rather overloaded truck was in Olantaytumbo, Peru, where you get on the train to go to Macchu Picchu, at the north end of the Sacred Valley. I have put this in my "incongruity" file....the guy on that overloaded truck, filled with flammables.

This will be my last upload till next Wednesday or Thursday. I am going down to Washington DC tomorrow for the annual Conference of Citizens Climate Lobby, and then to spend two days walking the halls of Congress, meeting with staffs of Senators or Representatives to lobby to try to convince them that they need to pass a carbon tax. In the cause of working to make a better world, around the big issue of climate change, the moral issue of our time.
