115/365: Layag Karts

April 25
Three boys with their improvised “Layag (sail) Karts”, Baseco Manila

Met these amazingly creative kids today at Baseco, Manila. They make these race cars with bottle caps, plastic straws and plastic bags. “Layag” is a Filipino word for “sail”. They place these brilliant toys at the direction of the wind and it does work! They literally race with the wind! I also shot some videos of them so I’m looking forward to editing that little film soon! Watch out.
