"Pack Animals" Photograph

I’m not sure exactly what produce this mule was carrying, possibly onions or one of the several types of fruit grown in the area, but it was clearly the most suitable transport option available along the rough mountain trails around this village in northern Thailand. Whatever it is the chances are that this crop will travel in a pickup truck, at least one lorry, maybe an airplane or two and then a private car before it gets eaten.

I was half-expecting the two men to straighten their legs and lift the mule off the ground. Unfortunately it didn’t happen like that.

Photograph taken in Chiang Rai Province, Thailand
