Crawford Market Mumbai

2 Tons on 2 Wheels

When visiting Mumbai (Bombay), India I went to the Crawford Market, the oldest established market in Mumbai, built by the British when it colonized India.  This market has it all but it’s all the traffic of people, carts and vendors that make it so exciting I think.  One thing I hadn’t seen yet in India were all these long carts that men used to push cargo around.  I think I actually seen more carts then trucks hauling stuff, as the road was covered with guys heaving stuff up and down the streets.

I think those are ten mini-refrigerators these two guys are moving.  One thing the photo can’t tell you is all the traffic horns going off because of these guy blocking the road.  Well that and Indians don’t know how to drive more then a minute without honking their horns.  At times I think it’s Indian law that one must honk their horn every minute or be fined on the spot by local police (serious).  You can’t spend very long in India and not see every single humanly way possible to move things.  I could do a whole photo-essay just on this!

    “Indians don’t know how to drive more then a minute without honking their horns.”
    Just FYI – the horn means something else to Indian drivers than it does to foreigners. It’s our way of life. Be cool with it. :)
