Sleeping Xich lo

Whilst walking around the old town of Hoi An I came across this xich lo driver. 'Xich lo' means 'peddle or cycle taxi' and they are all over the tourist town in Hoi An. They delicately weave in and out of the tourist crowds effortlessly ringing their bell to warn of their arrival. It's a tiring job! This driver had fallen asleep whilst reading his daily newspaper.
