Caribou Power – In the United States, automobile companies brag about the horsepower  of the engines of their vehicles.  In Asia, automobile manufacturers should consider calculating the strength of their automobile engines in “Caribou Power.”  The Caribou is a common sight in Asian countries.  This well-known beast of burden – plows like a tractor and can be ridden like a horse.  In Ormoc City, Leyte, Republic of the Philippines, Case, New Holland, Kubota and John Deere tractors are common sights on the roads and in the fields of some farms, but in the rice farms of my neighborhood, in rural Baas, near Tacloban City, Republic of the Philippines – it is the caribou that “puts the pedal to the medal” and plows the rice fields.  Photo by Samuel E.

Story Behind The Photo —  I took the “Caribou Power” Canon EOS 40 D photograph January 17, 2012  on the way to Tanauan and Tacloban City.  If you look at the edge of the photo you will notice the reflection in the side panel of the Starex van.  I leaned out the passenger side and shot this photo as we passed the farmers.  Photographer Samuel E. Warren Jr.
