On the morning of December 17th, we started out on our journey through more rural areas of northern Assam. We mostly traveled near the Brahmaputra River. We saw all kinds of people catching fish, harvesting rice, and working in the tea fields.
It is incredible to see all the human traffic on the road, competing with the same space as trucks, buses, and cars. People walking, people riding bicycles (many of them loaded), people pulling and pushing carts.
