…Number one in an occasional series…
Welcome to ‘Amazing Thailand’. Over the years, I have collected quite a few pictures of what really makes this unique, South East Asian country so wonderful and now I’m pleased to be able to share some of them with you via this blog.
Today’s example, ‘How to load a digger on a truck’ just goes to show that you don’t need any cumbersome Health & Safety legislation (despite what the sign in the photo says) or even a ramp for that matter. What you do need is the kind of ‘can do’ attitude that is also known as sheer bloody-mindedness… as well as a really big digger, a lorry and probably, a few stiff drinks beforehand!
I wish that I’d taken a video of this little escapade, because the noise of the digger trying to quite literally mount the flatbed truck, complete with the sound of bouncing springs on the part of the lorry, was absolutely mind boggling.
So, that was ‘How to load a digger on a truck’, Thai style. Stay tuned for more in the ‘Amazing Thailand’ series soon and while you’re here, why not check out these other posts?
