Hi RedDurio,
Hope they make deliveries ;D Fabulous pic BTW 8)
Time is like a river.
You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.
Enjoy every moment of your life!

I showed it to my thai wife, she goes Ohh jackfruit and walks away to play on her phone.

I would like to see him ride that bike, probably 2 people sit on it, the dog between the legs and the wife on the back holds the baby in her hands. They go to the market to make money. I love Asia. :P

I like these photos showing the can-do spirit in third world nations.

Looks like an underloaded 2 wheeler to me. You should see some of the ones here in India! I haven't seen any carrying fruits yet, but plenty with big metal milk canisters all the way around, giant loads of cardboard, and some with 4-6 people on them.
Great photo btw.
Just saw some jacks at local market today. Kind of surprising because i'm at 30N, but i'm told they grow here, but do better further south.
