This morning…

…I drove the Vespa to work along busy Dien Bien Phu St and as the lights changed from red to green at one intersection a couple on an old motorbike in front of me stayed motionless as the driver seemed to be having some trouble getting going.

I swung out around them and as I passed by I happened to glance down and notice that the driver had an artificial left leg protruding from under his trousers. He was having a problem balancing and getting moving in the busy traffic at the same time, but nobody seemed to mind.

I gave him a smile.
