My Garden Compound

In our garden compound within our bungalow, we have this small Amjad (in arabic) or an Autorickshaw. Owned by our house caretaker who rents it out to his friends who wants to earn a living.

His little vehicle has white PVC cushion seating and looks real neat.

Normally customers who board this amjad will not go too far since it can't go into certain main roads. The rate for foreigners, no matter how you bargain, could be three to five times more than the locals. The rate for us could be around 2 to 3 Sudanese pound for a not more than two kilometres ride.
In the early morning or evening during winter time (end Nov to end Feb), it would be too cold to sit in this amjad as it moves with wind blowing at you.
Our nicely landscaped garden. Too hot to sit outside at anytime of the day. Night time? We are worried about mosquitoes .......... haha.
