The Transportation Art of Pakistan (and Bangladesh)

Looking at these photographs of Pakistani (and Bangladeshi) vehicles, I sort of feel a little cheated that we don't see any painted cars here in America.

In Pakistan, all types of transportation are subject to becoming great traveling works of art.
As seen below, extensive murals are painted on trucks, rickshaws, and even boats.
The highways looks so beautiful and colorful!

(I was recently informed that some of these photos were taken in Bangladesh...oops.  Thank you for the correction!)

I'd have appreciated it if you had contacted me first!
Several of my photos here are of Bangladesh, not Pakistan, I could have warned you
