Quiz: What Are These?




What you see here is a public bus in ChangAn. I can't help but noticed these black thingies hanging from the overhead handle bars?

What do you think they are?

If my scribbling is obstructing your view, click here for the original picture.

I will reveal the answer in the comment section. See you there.

Well, believe it or not, they are black plastic bags for commuters who gets the motion sickness. Every bus here have them.

Apparently the folks here are not used to traveling especially so if they just arrived from the rural villages (in search of work).

With tractors and carts back home, these buses are like speedster demons to them and man... do they get really sick!

It's a really headache for me every time I need to ferry my maid to/from the factory. She would have to have a plastic bag on standby in the car.

If the car ride is 30 minutes, we would have to allocate an hour for her. 30 minutes to get there, 30 minutes for her to get up.
Haiz....
