Four to a Bike

Not such an unusual scene . . .
It should have been snowing, but instead, it is 24 degrees Celcius. I'm not complaining, but I am telling you, it's not us (Lebanon) that's creating this global warming. Just look at these guys; four on a motorbike; one kid on the tank, the other dangling by the side. I sure hope she's not losing her grip any time soon. And mom behind dad. Helmets, anyone?

Scary stuff, those overloaded motorbikes. You see amazing things like that in many poor Asian and Africa countries too.

I've always been in awe in Holland when I see a mother with a baby in front and a kid in back on a regular bike, but of course properly secured, and traffic that takes them into account. I left before I had my kids, so I never learned how to do that!
