This morning on the way to work, I walked past this young man. He seems to be always standing by the covered block whenever I meet him, but today I realized why. The block is ice, and this man delivers ice to people in the city.

His delivery vehicle is a bicycle.

I can imagine him cycling in a mad hurry to his destination, because the ice is uncovered and the heat is extreme here at the equator. It went to 31 degrees Celsius today and if you look closely, you’ll notice that the ice is already melting. A challenging job, made worse by the heavy traffic and the terrible pollution he has to battle.
