The typical “third world” transport is overloaded. It could be a bike, a car, a truck, an airplane or a ferry. This is one of the greatest contrasts you see when you move from such a region to the US (and were not protected as a tourist often is) …. zillions of large cars driving around with one person per car is an astonishing site, if you are unaccustomed.
