Of all of the amazing things that I saw in India, I think that the jingle trucks were by far my favorite. All over Indian highways there are these Tata trucks that each driver fully customizes to their own liking, painting them brilliant colors, adding eyes to the back and front of the truck, dangling pompoms and tassels from every available point. They’re all totally unique, and often made even more so by their unique horns – every time I heard them they would send me into hysterics. meepMEEPmeepMEEPmeepMEEP or boopBOOP-beeeeep-boopBOOP-beep and so on, passing you at breakneck speeds and with mere inches to spare on each side.
