Jingle truck

This is picture of a typical "jingle truck." These little vehicles are seen everywhere in large numbers and are the traveling salesmen of Afghanistan, carrying goods to all parts of the country. According to a co-worker the decorations and metal "chimes
(seen hanging off the bottom front of the truck bed) are meant to ward off the "jinn" or evil spirits. These little buggies are somewhere between the size of a golf cart and a Smart 4 2 and can go about 25mph max. (One soldier compared them to the ice cream truck!)
