Bicycle

Norman Lewis wrote in his 1951 book “a dragon apparent” that one of the essentials a Laotian would work for, was a bicycle for their daughter.

“Each one had a bicycle- infallibly fitted with dynamo lighting, and sometimes three – speed gears.”

Progress and economic development has meant that in Laos and especially Vietnam the bicycle has now been replaced by the scooter.
