Bowled Over by Bhutan - 2007

Something we noticed on the farms and the roads was the very useful rototiller. Farm folk

use it for plowing and tilling as it is was developed to do, but these resourceful people also

use it for transportation by hitching a wagon to the rototiller and loading people and

objects inside. Then down the rocky roads the driver goes, freeing himself from

backbreaking haulage and his passengers from long walks. There were many more

rototillers in use as transportation than scooters on country roads, but you could also

see them on the roads in Paro! A very useful item indeed and probably pretty efficient

to run—important to a country where all oil and gasoline must be imported from India.
