Collective Taxi / Human Transportation Truck Service

The World > North America > Caribbean > Cuba > Santiago de Cuba

  • Like / unlike
  • thumbs up

Here is your standard-issue budget transportation service. Folks piled (ok, standing) on the bed of a truck. Keep your knees bent, folks, there are potholes. Members of more privileged countries find this kind of transportation rather alarming and unsafe (seatbelts?) but it is anything but unusual in the majority of the world.

I didn't try whatever they're selling here, but it's probably good, because the line is long.

This panorama was taken in Santiago de Cuba, North America

This is an overview of North America

North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.

The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.

The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III.

From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.

With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities. Expect massive leaps in creative output in your area!
