What a lively scene, Peter! Judging from the sky, you captured a moment of sunlight on an otherwise cloudy day.

The vehicle plate says Tuluá, is this where the photo was taken? Also, are the bagged goods produce? If so, is it being transported in to be sold, or is it loaded to be hauled away?

Tom the place is the pueblo of Trujillo. Tulua is the largest nearby city. I believe the jeep was loaded with goods to sell as it pulled in to the town center like this as I was walking around. Produce of some sort. They always transport the eggs on the hood.

Interesting that the Jeep seems to have a license plate (perhaps in "label" form) on its right rear flank.

Best regards,

Doug

At last, I found the eggs! I did not expect to find them in front on the hood like that!

What's that cylinder with that sheet metal tube coming from the hood to the front right side of the jeep?

It's probably the air filter from a "semi". They doll their jeeps up every way they can.

Interesting pic Peter! Whenever I take a long road trip like this I take my own chickens it alleviates the fear of breaking the eggs and am guaranteed fresh eggs each day.
