THE MOST COLORFUL THINGS IN AFGHANISTAN |
May 01, 2007
Jingle trucks are by far the most colorful things in Afghanistan. They are brightly painted, with chimes hanging off the front bumper (thus the name), and many are adorned with colorful tassels. These trucks are everywhere, almost as common as cars. One of my early posts on The Sandbox was about JINGLE TRUCKS, and I am known around here as a big jingle truck fan. I am always snapping photos of them when we are out driving, and as I near the end of this deployment I thought I'd share some of the better shots from my collection. Enjoy.
Jingle trucks aren't just big tractor trailer trucks. Here are some other varieties:
The Jingle Ford Ranger
The Jingle Dump Truck
The Jingle Trailer
And finally, the Jingle Toy Truck, which will be proudly displayed in my office once I get home.
