This is one of the ways we traveled in China. They would stack luggage and bedding, and Dad and others would ride on top of the luggage while Mom and I were inside with the driver. You can see Mom and me looking out the window.
Often the truck didn't have good brakes. Whenever the truck slowed down, a man would jump out and put a piece of log under the wheel to stop it.
Once, we were riding on a narrow mountain road and Mom noticed the truck veering to the edge of a huge dropoff. Glancing at the driver, she saw he was asleep. Grabbing the steering wheel, she guided the truck back on the road. After that, she kept talking to the driver to keep him awake.
Another instance of the Lord's watch care over us in the area of transportation.
