You skimp on very short words like 'your' but you say passenger tricycle as opposed to trike.

Seniors at some point are not allowed to drive a car anymore and they buy a 3 wheeler to make some extra money to help with the paltry pension system. a closed glass trike for passengers with a motorcycle  is about 24000 rmb in Beijing.(much less other places)

 

They usually try to charge double the rate of a taxi and then negotiate down because they are not always guaranteed a return trip from a fare. They will always get someone at a crowded train station but maybe nobody to get back to the train station, hence the double fare.

 

As for using them, the seniors will drive slower, some times in bike lanes away from cars, sometimes not, perhaps safer in a real taxi with a liquid natural gas tank bomb in the trunk. The traffic is so bad and slow that when you hit, at least it is at low speeds but i stick to the buses. Retired means I don't care if I'm late.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
