Photographer's Note

About Rickshaws in Paris

He world economic crisis create new jobs, like rickshaw, kind of bike or tricycle, I have seen them not only in China but in New York (post here one of them) London, Mexique, Munich, Berlin and also in Paris

I took one to go from the Louvre Museum to Place de la Concorde, short trip but with time to talk with the driver
He was a charming boy that asked me to speak in Spanish, he wanted to learn and practice languages and so become a touristic guide, asked about his work he told how it is organized in France

There are three ways, with a full motor as in the photo, they paid full taxes, with a light motor as he had, they paid half taxes than the ones with motor and finally there are some with no motor at all, they paid not taxes
