Only in Oxford, only in Oxford

OUTSIDE THE RANDOLPH HOTEL in Oxford, a purportedly five star hotel and opposite the Ashmolean, due to re-open real soon now, we spotted a different kind of marriage carriage.

Yes, an auto rickshaw – just like in Bangalore!

And then, outside the HSBC bank on Cornmarket, this! Sorry for the sound quality – watch the moves!

  1. Is not that sort of conveyance called a “Tuk-tuk?”
    I thought that Rickshaws are powered by a man running. Not so?
