When was your first cyclo trip?

My first experience in a Cyclo?.. back in 2000 in Cambodia.. how about you?.. you been for a ride on one of these?..
Cyclos appeared in Saigon in 1939. The first cyclo was invented by a French man
named Coupeaud. The first city using this vehicle was Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
This vehicle then came to Saigon. In late 1939, Saigon had only 40 cyclos.
The number rose to 200 in 1940.

A coach running from Saigon to Vung Tau in 1925.

 The joys of being on the streets of Hanoi.. in a cyclo.. toot.. toot.. honk.. honk.. beep.. beep..
 The best way of seeing life!!! Thank you Mr Cyclo driver.. for your energy and skills at maneuvering your bike, and me through peak hour traffic, safely.  

Thank you Michael.. it was good to meet you.. see you again soon..
