Sharing a Ride

I had walked from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden in Yunnan, China to a nearby Dai village to look at some tea gardens. Just as I was starting to walk back, a motorized rickshaw appeared out of nowhere.  So did a young Dai women who had just finished working in her rice field and was looking for a lift to her village. Although we couldn't communicate verbally, it was clear that we were both amenable to sharing the ride.  We had a very pleasant five minute trip together. [NOTE: I thought it appropriate to start the new year off with a smile].
