Truck Art

Asalam Alaikum,

A couple months ago a neighbor of ours had a tanker come to fill up their water tank and they had the cutest little decoration on the truck, we had to take a picture of it.

Saad loves airplanes and when he saw this one he got so excited to go out with daddy to look at it up close.

I really like seeing all the trucks and buses in Karachi, they are always decorated with vinyl stickers and paintings in every color of the rainbow. Some buses even have large tassels and feathers sticking out of the top. Even trucks that cart around garbage have decorations covering almost every inch! Here is a site with some great pictures of truck art in Pakistan.

I have seen some buses that are older and look pretty beat up, I do sometimes wonder if the vinyl is only for decoration or if it is like the old joke about duct tape being the only thing holding something together! It isn't just trucks and buses either, people decorate their motorcycles and bicycles too.

Pakistan is really a very vibrant, colorful place.
