Where in the World is Smokey?

Peddling a Rickshaw in China

Grant Gilreath is a senior, working on a major in Global Studies and minor in political science.

"I am currently an exchange student at Sichuan University in Chengdu, China. In this picture I am driving a Rickshaw which is still used in this city and on my campus as a cheap form of transportation."

"Off campus taxis are normally used. But on campus for those who don't have a bicycle and don't feel like walking 30 minutes to the other side of campus or have the time, they can hire a Rickshaw driver to take them where they need to go normally for a few of 2 or 3 RMB (less than 50 cents). With a little persuasion (by persuasion I mean money), I was able to borrow a rickshaw and drive people around and take pictures. Enjoy!"
