Babies complain of shortage of transport!

I rarely see babies in prams or pushchairs – most of the babies I see are carried by their mother or father. I think I know why.

You may have noticed in previous posts that the ladies who sell things often have mobile shops made from skillfully converted prams and pushchairs.

I saw several today.

This lady is selling cloves of garlic.

Anyway, I suspect that there is such a high demand for converted prams and pushchairs that there are very few unconverted ones left for babies.

Perhaps there is a big factory somewhere that makes these conversions and supplies them to the ladies who sell things.

Hmm, I wonder if babies here learn to walk earlier than babies in other countries.

  1. Bassa, those things that the ladies sell might be very precious for them like their babies. That’s why they use the converted prams to sell! 🙂

    • They are amazing and much needed by the ladies who sell things. They are often older ladies and not able to carry much so putting their merchandise in prams makes life a little easier for them. It’s still a tough life though 😦

  2. Interesting!! You should ask De if they used a Pram for the little person Perhaps the people there found it easier to carry the little people and put everything else in the pram? Just a thought…. 🙂

    Keep up the great posts!

    God Bless You!

  3. I’m chuckling at the clever title, Bassa. (Imagining babies in nappies holding up sign boards that say, “We want our prams!”)

    I don’t think I had a pram as a kid; those were not so popular in the Philippines. Perhaps you can ask De when the Little Person started to walk and then compare with other little people. 🙂

    • De says that Gigi did not have a pram so maybe every new consignment of prams is instantly seized by the ladies who sell things or maybe Georgians just enjoy carrying their babies! 🙂

  4. How clever those vendors are to use prams for their wares. But hopefully babies have some sort of transportation. Maybe we can start a fundraiser to raise enough baby carriages from the states and send them to you, Bassa. You could distribute them to the babies! 🙂

  5. Now that is very interesting to us. We’ve never seen a pram used for food. Although, we’ve seen some people use similar to stroll around their little dogs. x Berner Girls

  6. If they learn to walk earlier, it would be a major evolutionary step for humankind and it ought to be reproduced worldwide! We’ve gotta make some deeper investigation on the subject!

    On the other hand, prams and pushchairs would seem like a great business opportunity around there! 😉
