260: Soapbox cart
When you think of a soapbox cart, you may think of the old stories of your father or grandfather. Or of a children’s story. Even though sometimes attempts have been made to resurrect this piece of nostalgia, this kind of self-made vehicle is not common, even in Brazil. But when I walked along the beach in Joao Pessoa, I encountered this soapbox car with a small child inside the soapbox, pushed by an adult. I can remember the stories that these carts had a front wheel, with which children were able to steer, but this cart was pushed and controlled by the adult. The boy did not have to do anything, he just can enjoy.
