Horse Carts

<<previous next>>
Uruguay horse carts
This is a very common sight in Uruguay, that I did not see elsewhere. Horse carts marching with the most modern cars in the city side by side. In Uruguay horse carts like the one in the picture are used as a means of making a living, by the lower classes in Uruguay. They are used to carry out activities like: garbage digging, or cardboard recolection, or wood transporting. It usual to see them followed by one or two dogs.Uruguay horse carts ...

my sister and I used to count the horse carts that we saw when we were in Uruguay in 1963! I am amazed to see that they still exist. I find your blog a nice trip back to long ago memories. I see many familiar buildings in your pictures.

I know many are opposed to the horsecarts, they believe it is a "black eye" to Uruguay's public image. However, the horses and the carts are sustainable, since they use grass for fuel (food), and they are performing very needed recycling functions. Even better, these carts and their owners are private enterprise, no government tax money is used for their operation. Milton Friedman , Maggie Thatcher, and Ronald Reagan would approve!

Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
