Havana,  Cuba,  November 2016

In Havana, there are plenty of taxis available to both locals and tourists.  They range from classic American cars, through ladas to rickshaws.

The most unusual is the yellow globe-shaped vehicle, a sort of engine-powered rickshaw. They have two passenger seats at the rear, three wheels, and a 75cc two-stroke engine. They are known as Coco Taxis, because their shape resembles that of  a coconut.
