9. For an exhilarating moment that tiny engine can even outpace any car on the road.

11. Then again, your driver may questionably be half your age.

You’ve likely thought: Is that kid expertly whizzing through traffic, or just high on something and getting lucky? ignorance can be bliss.

17. Followed by the most maddening rule of all: The driver can loudly blast whatever techno he likes.

18. But defy the rickshaw logic, and you’ll likely miss out on some of the world’s coolest side streets and sites.

19. Beyond the humdrum of haggling, every rickshaw is in its own ridiculous way unique.

Some even spell it out for you.

20. With style, the driver is able to (somehow) outmaneuver the craziest of rains, tricky roads, and potholes that those in power always fail to fix.

Remember: Block out the times you actually do tip over.

21. There may not actually be any Wifi.

Clever marketing, though.

23. Or this?

24. And defy gravity like this?

Didn’t think so.

25. Yep, 100% endorsed by Macklemore.

26. And if you’re reading this then you’ve survived the crazy ride.

And maybe will do it all again tomorrow.

27. So, next time, don’t forget your selfie.

And be safe.
