Horse-Drawn Wagon Siting

Driving along the billion other cars on the road you could imagine my shock and dire need to capture this moment before it was gone forever.

A horse-drawn wagon.

In Beijing. In 2011, a day and age where car advertisements are literally printed on every single page in the Chinese newspaper.

He even follows road signs!

But he's colorblind and couldn't see the red light ahead.

Oh, the irony!

I’m sure they were just passing through from a nearby farm on the outskirts of the city, but still, horse-drawn anythings are hard to come by these days (unless you’re at Central Park in New York). It must be quite a hassle getting through traffic with that grandeur size!

    This is one of my favorite things about Beijing! I see a horse drawn veggie or fruit wagon about once every two months or so. And on some roads you see a sign indicating horse drawn carts aren’t allowed. Seams like a joke until you see one in action for the first time!
