How Much Wood Could a Wood Truck Truck if…

Very few of the villagers have watches, however they do have the wood truck every morning  blasting its horn to let them know what time it is.  Accuracy of this time would depend upon whether the truck was delayed because it could not get past traffic or had trouble navigating the narrow streets.   People buy wood every day and carry it up the mountain to fuel their stoves.  Watching small boys navigate the steep pathways with a huge load of wood is fascinating.

Wood trucks come in a variety of sizes some very  noisy.

    Great pictures! I am wondering how much the wood costs? Such a struggle for the basics – so very sobering.
