Water buffalo-drawn cart, Taketomi Island
24-MAY-2003

Water buffalo-drawn cart, Taketomi Island

The sign says "suigyuushaa," or water cow vehicle, so I assume it's actually a water buffalo (but they are often referred to as ox-drawn carts in English).

Such a beautiful cart - but the poor ox does look rather over worked and interesting that it does not appear to be controlled ! V

The poor thing seems to be struggling. Great capture of island life. V
