Sindh province, Pakistan. Something you dont see every day.

 

buffalo

I had visited upstate Sindh for a few days, and was heading back down towards Karachi, on the outskirts of a small village when I saw this in front of me. A lot is transported by scooter in Pakistan, entire families, but this was the only time I ever saw a buffalo on a bike.

I couldnt quite believe what I was seeing, and asked my driver to get close enough to take a picture. After taking it, we got level and I could see that the thing was still alive. My driver explained that it was almost definitely heading to market to be sold, had to be alive, although it would have been given a sedative to get it attached in the first place.

 

On the plus side, the rider was actually wearing a helmet, which is rare.
