Pedi-powered Pickups

I’ve been meaning for some time to post a picture of one of these conveyances that are ubiquitous in Merida. Since Merida is essentially flat, their single speed is sufficient.

The units cost around 1,800 pesos and are used for a wide variety of purposes. Here a vendor is using his to peddle (pun entirely intended) his food product before one of the Carnaval parades. Vendors drive the vehicles up and down the streets hawking their wares, they are used to cart freight, and often one sees them carrying passengers.
