Now, watch this little video (funny but serious too!) while I’m correcting the copies and check the correction under the screen:


Question 1:   a) and b)     a) is a camel palanquin in Jodhpur.

Question 2:  a) Just because Kolkata is famous for its pulled-rickshaws.

Question 3:   a) Green and yellow. It could have been in Agra too. b) is inpossible because Lahore Gate is in Delhi but it is not an autorickshaw but a cycle-rickshaw.

Question 4:     e) Thai writing and the two little typical fences on each side of the rickshaw.

Question 5:    c)  France. The Eiffel Tower in the background.

Question 6:   f)  Pakistan. Urdu writing.

Question 7:    d) Mumbai. Black and yellow.

Question 8:    a) …I think! It could be a UFO too!  It was pimped for the Rickshaw Challenge.

Question 9:    b)  Thaïland. Can’t you see the little white fences to prevent the passengers from falling?

Question 10:  b) Indonesia.  Barack Obama is a statue and the people look more Indonesian than Indian.

Wallah! Oups! I mean: Voilà!

  1. Your love for India is amazing! I’ve lived in the UK for five years and I have never come across anyone from those parts of the world with such love! Great going!
    And by the way, I have been to Paris as well. Loved it! Charming city!

    • You know, when I love something, it is always completely!
      Paris is really beautiful, it is true. Very harmonious! Unfortunately, Paris inhabitants are not always charming. We still have to improve on that point!
