Jingle Truck

This is typical of most trucks in Afghanistan. Highly customized, with scenes or patterns painted on them, and metal that hangs down and jingles as the truck drives. You can see the metal-jingly-things hanging down off the front & rear bumpers, and on that thing between the front and rear tires.

The load contents vary, but are always overflowing.

This winter I am hoping to get a picture of one driving by with a FIRE IN THE CAB OF THE TRUCK. They do this for warmth, as the trucks either frequently have broken heaters or do not have heaters--I don't know which.

(Reminds me of college: "The ______ is broken and ON FIRE! Please come fix it.")
